Avahi is a fully LGPL framework for Multicast DNS Service Discovery.
It allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts
running on a local network with no specific configuration. For
example you can plug into a network and instantly find printers to
print to, files to look at and people to talk to.
This package contains utility modules to talk to Avahi with Python easier.

* Drop shlibs files.
Those are no longer necessary as all libraries provide symbols files

To completely stop avahi-daemon under systemd the avahi-daemon.socket
