Whats the story with gstreamer-32bit? It looks like Leap wont have them
due to the lack of i586 target. That can be added, and I think I did add
it a few months ago for a few packages. Not sure if the publisher would
be able to deal with the -32bit packages. This can probably be fixed. I
will try once more.
The TW and 13.x repos have a i586 target so -32bit packages do exist.
Are they functional in the wine environment?

Which comment in that bug contains the fix to be applied by the
gstreamer maintainers in OBS and/or packman?

Factory turned into a compile-test-only repo since TW is a rolling
release. It was already suggested a few times to "unpublish" Factory
from the mirrors.

I'm sure the pkg maintainers of packman do only a subset of their
mistakes on purpose.

This is done since last week for TW and 42.2.
