hm, why codecs and multimedia?

multimedia (1)
contrib (all other stuff)

In (1) we should provide all libs and apps which are crippled by
openSUSE (linked to obs) _and_ most wanted apps/libs that are not
shipped with openSUSE, for example vlc/mplayer/mad/ffmpeg etc.

Newer version of vlc should be build in contrib and if we don't get
bugreports for some time, it could be add in multimedia.

And if we have directories on vesta like


we could run a createrepo on openSUSE_11.3 with repodata in
openSUSE_11.3/repodata. So we could offer packman as big
repo too. Never tried this, but should work... ;)
