I don’t think you have to do anything on your part, when I tried 
to update ecl locally zypper returned an error because your app 
had a dependency on a library no longer available 
(libecl.so.20.4). So it should be okay as long as storeman doesn’t 
force the update.

Of course, it’s no big deal. Although I don’t think there is a 
device that uses it yet.

Will do, I’ll send an email here.

I understand, but I still think it’s not a great user experience

Yep, I’ll look into it. For eql we might need to tweak the qmake 
files but it seems there are some work already done for static
