OK. I was looking at the "BuildRequires:  libquvi-devel >= 0.2.0" line
from cclive.spec. I see from configure.ac that it's actually >= 0.4.0.
In such a case I have no problem with it being build for 12.1.

You can submit it to the main openSUSE repo ;-)

IMHO for .*quvi.* it makes more sense to submit an update to
multimedia:libs and, if cclive is in Packman, just link to
multimedia:libs from Packman. Now Packman will have an updated version
but openSUSE will be released with an outdated quvi. But it would not
be he first case...
