Since sunday september 18th faac is provided in tainted repos for
mageia1 and cauldron.... after some controversy
Mplayer (for the mencoder part)
had been imported and built in core... and in tainted repo with some
specific building potentially infringing patents
but BR faac option was not validated for them because faac was not
present in the repo !
Now the situation has changed :
Handbrake bundles faac and could be built with this BR
Now that faac is present mythtv has been built with BR faac
4 packages may now be built with BR faac (the same as they are in plf
for Mandriva 2010.2 or 2011):
mplayer : https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2771
gstreamer-plugins-bad : https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2772
libquicktime : https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2773
vlc : https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2774
These four packages have just been rebuilt with new libpng by Funda
I wrote a mp to Funda asking if he may rebuild them with BR faac now
that it's provided ...
He thinks this should be discussed here
Annsi Hannula seems to think so too :
he said in bug 1730
"Other things (including if using it in mythtv is ok) probably need to
be decided on a case-by-case basis."
one other package should be imported now (bug 1730 was blocking until now)

What do you think ?
