Well, but that's now, _after_ you made changes to the vlc package on Packman, 
And IMHO it's a bad idea anyway to change the package on Packman only.
Packman's package is just a link to the one in the multimedia:libs repo on 
Changes should be done there, so not only Packman users get them, but also 
users of the official packages (and even the ones from the VideoLAN repo).

Otherwise any change on OBS might break the package on Packman.
We already had this a few months ago:

So please submit your changes to the vlc package on OBS too, if possible.

Kind Regards,
