Sorry to open the controversy again :
that's not only for one package but for this faac package and
- for packages strictly depending on it :
cinelerra, handbrake, arista

- for packages that offer more possibilities if built on it :
mencoder (part of mplayer) , libquicktime, vlc, gstreamer-plugins-bad,
transcode, audiokonverter, avidemux, mythtv,

see https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2833

or seach in bugzilla "all" bugs with faac

nothing else than a third repository, or a do it yourself, for people
needing to create flv, mp4 or aac files.
