Default xine-lib 1.1.19-3.1ubuntu1 (Accepted)

This is troubling, here's the last merge changelog entry:

xine-lib (1.1.19-2ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

* merge from debian, remaining changes:
- remove build-dependency on libvcdinfo-dev, fixes FTBFS.
- don't build against system libdvdnav, libdvdread, both in universe
- build the faad plugin against the internal copy of libfaad
- change order of the alternate dependencies libxine-plugins and
libxine1-misc-plugins. The former would drag in libxine1-ffmpeg
via recommends on the live cd.
* remove graphicsmagick-libmagick-dev-compat, not in main





Before, we were only using one internal library and building one
plugin from it.* Now we're building against 4 internal libraries.*
This doesn't seem like a good idea for the LTS as the security team
will most likely have to support those embedded libraries for 5
years.* Is there a need for this change?* Also, the only rdepends of
xine-lib in main are kaffeine and kde-runtime.

@kubuntu-devel

Do we need this other functionality?* If so, can we please get MIRs
for those libraries?



Thanks,

Micah

I have to apologize.* As Colin pointed out to me in #ubuntu-devel,
nothing has actually changes between the natty and precise packages
in terms of the diff from Debian (i.e. changing which internal
libraries are built against).* So, thank you Reinhard for making the
current state clearer in the changelog .* However, these should
still probably be examined for the LTS if we should be using these
internal libs, MIR them, or possibly drop them from the package.



Apologies for my hastiness,

Micah

I'll drop the kde-config-phonon-xine package and remove libxine1-dev from
kde-runtime build-deps since we don't support the phonon xine backend
anymore.

I wouldn't be opposed to demoting kaffeine if it's the last package that keeps
xine-lib in main. We only ship kaffeine on the Kubuntu dvd and most users
probably install vlc anyway.

People keep telling me that Kaffeine has uniquely awesome DVB support,
so I'd be careful with that sorta statement. Still I think demotion is
fine, Kaffeine fails to deliver user experience and platform
integration (Phonon anyone?). So even if it really has uniquely
awesome DVB support I'd argue that this is the only reason for having
it at all in the archives (looked at the bugs in launchpad recently?
... brrr....).

BR,
H
