Dear Tumbleweed users, For the last few months, several people have worked on porting packages dependent on gstreamer v0.10 to updated gstreamer 1.x, and we are left with only a few (unmaintained by upstream?) packages in Factory which are still dependent on the old version and are not portable in a straightforward way. These are (apart from gstreamer-0_10 plugins):
* freqtweak * ignuit * kde3-kaffeine * kdemultimedia3 * libucil * moodbar * morituri * pgadmin3 * psi+-plugins-psimediaplugin * python-gstreamer-0_10 * sffview * wxWidgets * wxWidgets-ansi * wxWidgets-wxcontainer * xfce4-mixer * xfce4-volumed
I would like to now (in a couple of days) file drop requests for the entire gstreamer-0_10 stack for openSUSE:Factory. This is a consequence of the lack of upstream support for gstreamer < 1.0 (GStreamer 1.0 was released on September 24, 2012), which makes, for instance, security issues such as  difficult to track and fix. Having this in the Tumbleweed distro is therefore ill-advised.
...the following droprequests have now been filed for openSUSE:Factory
Thanks and best wishes.
I hope you understand that most people are away during the end of year holliday season, and giving only 48 hours to people to react seems to be a bit offensive, in terms of approach, don't you think ?
I would like to dig into pgadmin3 why it would need gst. We don't have any replacement tool for the moment, (pgadmin4 is not 100% ready for use by mass) so we can't simply drop it because of...
It depends on gst-0_10 indirectly, because wxWidgets 2.8 still depends on gst 0.10 (wxWidgets >= 3.0 versions have been patched to work with gst >= 1.0 in openSUSE:Factory).
Hope that helps.
