the situation really hasn't improved at all. Packages like vlc (incl.
the vlc-codecs sub-package) and handbrake-1.0.7 still fail to build due
to the incompatible API of the new libx264. While Antonio's work is
really well appreciated, it didn't help other packages, which used to
work and were builable before! Shouldn't we roll back to the state of
libx264 before this patch and move the patches to the new Staging repo?
Right now, installing vlc on Leap 15.0 is not amusing, or even possible :(
