[packman] Trouble with packages either missing or non-functional on SLE_11/Evergreen

Hi there,

due to the new structure of the packman repo(s), I've been left with
some packages which are no longer available anywhere, or which are
already installed on my systems, but render unusable due to recently
released updates for the SLE_11 and/or Evergreen repos.

Here are the packages which I have installed, but which are no longer
available anywhere:


(I've just included the version numbers in case someone needs them). I
understand that GUI programs like DVDStyler and/or avidemux are
difficult to maintain over time, so I looked for an alternative for
DVDStyler (because it does no longer work due to the recent updates for
the libav* packages). My attempt to install "kdvdauth" from the openSUSE
buildservice (KDE:/KDE3/SLE_11 repo) however fails, as it requires
"transcode" which is not available anywhere (for SLE_11/Evergreen/11.1).

Is it possible to get some packages back into the set of packages which
are still built for SLE_11/Evergreen? Or, can "transcode" be added?

FWIW, here's the error message from invoking dvdstyler and trying to
create an ISO from an MPG file:

  Output #0, dvd, to '/nobackup/tmp/dvd-tmp/menu1-0.mpg_bg.mpg':
      Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg2video, yuv420p, 720x576 [PAR 64:45 DAR 16:9], q=2-31, 6000 kb/s, 90k tbn, 25 tbc
      Stream #0.1: Audio: mp2, 48000 Hz, 2 channels, 64 kb/s
  [mp2 @ 0xbe41b0] Specified sample_fmt is not supported.
  [mpeg2video @ 0xbcbbd0] rc buffer underflow

TIA, cheers.
