Does the split between multimedia:apps and multimedia:libs still make
sense? Obviously the apps are not usable without libs repo added as
well, because they build against these packages. I would join both
projects into one called "multimedia". Any comments on that?

Sounds like a great idea. Maybe I'm missing something, but why not move
multimedia:libs into devel:libraries:c_c++?

that would be very counter-productive, considering that most of
multimedia:apps depends on libraries from multimedia:libs => having
those libs in devel:libraries:c_c++ would just move the problem to
another repository;

the idea is to merge the two repos (multimedia:{apps,libs}) into one, so
the users won't run into issues all the time.

The original idea of having the apps seperate was to make it possible to
install them at all for the average user.

When you try to update to libs you run quite often in dependency problems.

However this makes of course only sense when :apps is building also against
the distros directly, which it doesn't atm.

does no one have problems on a plain 11.3 or 11.4 with that repo atm ?
