[packman] Warning I'm submitting dvdauthor to openSUSE

I think that some packages couldn't use the new version, I'm going
through the dependent packages. So far I've updated 360_burn and am
busy with opendvdproducer. dvdshrink no longer supplies source and
devede should be deleted, it was replaced by devedeng a long time ago.
Maybe the old dvdauthor is needed for dvdshrink. The biggest problem
is these packages only require dvdauthor and old packages may not work
with the new dvdauthor.
