    Right, but xine-lib in unstable doesn't support it. It will work with
    xine-lib in experimental though, but that is the xine-lib-1.2
    development branch. There is still a lot of work to do there, so I'm
    curious how you plan to package the vdr-plugin-xine package?

    Yes, i am aware of this, the package was ready long time ago, it is
    mostly based on Darren Salt's work, he provided it together with the
    patched xine-lib in his private repository. Darren informed me that
    the new xine-lib with the patch entered experimental, so i decided to
    finally write this ITP. (In fact i did not really think that the
    official xine-lib package would ever get this patch, as the
    corresponding whishlist-bug (#227588) was almost 4 years old.)

    The plugin was already uploaded to experimental and is now waiting in
    NEW.


    Regards,
    Thomas
