Re: [opensuse-factory] removal of obsolete packages (here: gstreamer-0_10)

Would it be possible to get an overview just as the one above with

it would be good to get rid of it (off my head I know that pidgin's
patch set is in a terrible state - we had that for a while, but

There is a quick way to check all packages for possible source-level compatibility with gstreamer-1.0:

- Create a new OBS project.
- Create a special prjconf:
Substitute: gstreamer-0_10-devel gstreamer-1_0-devel
.. and the same for all other sub-packages.
- Link there all packages that have gstreamer-0_10* in BuildRequires.

If such experiment makes sense, I could create it. I did something similar for wxWidgets in past.
