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.

Hi Stanislav,

Can be worthy to do, just to get an overview again... generally, there
should not be that much eft:

zypper se -t srcpackage --requires gstreamer-0 | grep -v gstreamer-
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...

S | Name | Summary
| Type
| fillmore-lombard | Audio and Video Editors for GNOME
| srcpackage
| florence | Extensible scalable on-screen
virtual keyboard | srcpackage
| gnac | Audio converter for GNOME
| srcpackage
| gtkpod | A platform independent GUI for the
AppleĀ® iPodĀ® | srcpackage
| istanbul | Istanbul desktop session recorder
| srcpackage
| openfetion | IM Client for the Fetion protocol
| srcpackage
| pidgin | Multiprotocol Instant Messaging
Client | srcpackage
| pidgin-sipe | Pidgin protocol plugin to connect
to MS Office Communicator | srcpackage
| bundle-lang-common | Translations for a Group of
Programs | srcpackage
| bundle-lang-gnome | Translations for many GNOME
programs | srcpackage
| libnice | Interactive Connectivity
Establishment implementation | srcpackage
| ARToolKit_gst | Augmented Reality Tracking Library
| srcpackage

That's of course only the ones directly requiting it.. but that's
already a good starting point.

Out of those I know:
* pidgin: version 3.0 should resolve this. Patches landed in the tree,
but backporting seems a bit a mess.
* fillmore-lombard: that can probably be dropped anyway - there is no
real activity upstream and this is just bitrotting

The others I don't know their status by heart.
