[Mageia-dev] Gstreamer pfl codecs/plugins

I noticed the gstreamer codecs included in Mageia so far are lacking all
the codecs that in Mandriva are in plf, such as h.264, aac, etc.

I'm aware that even in Mageia we still keep these separate in 'tainted',
but I would have thought that the 'tainted' packages would be built at the
same time from the same source RPMS as the 'core' ones (since the imported
Mandriva SRPMs contain '%if %build_plf' for that purpose).

I assume it would make most sense if the current maintainer of the
gstreamer packages also submits the 'tainted' builds, or not?

I'm asking this since I need the gstreamer plf/'tainted' codecs as
dependencies for some other 'tainted' packages.
