I still have not 11.4 installed. But it's my understanding that in
this version openSUSE implemented the Fedora's
gstreamer-rpm-packagekit integration that makes codecs automatically
installed*. But comparing
with http://pmbs.links2linux.org/package/files?package=gstreamer010&project=Essentials
it seems Packman lacks the needed "provides"?

detrei is bugowner and maintainer, most of the changelog is from toni,
but Pascal did most of the commits in the new BS. Who is the
maintainer then? He has any problem with me starting to substitute
Packman's versions with links to the OBS?

* it's really good, codecs supported by a package are extracted by RPM
and provided by the package. So if an user needs H.264 support it will
get the Packman package even if there is an openSUSE version with the
same name (since the openSUSE version will not provide
"gstreamer(h264)", or whatever is used)
