It has been uploaded and built on most architectures (still Needs-Build on
mips and s390x).

When you schedule the binNMUs, please also include bs1770gain, kodi and mlt,
even though they are already built against ffmpeg.
The new version has gained a libavcodec-extra flavor, so they should pick
up the alternative dependency on libavcodec-ffmpeg-extra56.

As the transition is now ongoing, I've changed the severity of #790356
(gst-libav1.0) to serious and filed #793015 for taoframework.

Best regards,
