You're welcome. And now, libvdpau-0.3 has been packaged and the packaging has 
been placed in the svn repo.

Note that you'll have to re-checkout from the svn repo, since I screwed up the 
last checkin of libvdpau-0.3. Other than that, all the files are in the usual 

Also, before any upload of libvdpau is done, the nvidia-graphics-drivers 
packages for libvdpau has to have one package that only installs the vdpau 
driver (i.e. the libvdpau_nvidia.so.* files). So an nvidia-libvdpau1-driver 
package should exist that only installs the vdpau driver.

This means we have to wait until the next NVIDIA driver release is made, which 
should have the files,
 /usr/lib/libvdpau_nvidia.so -> vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.190.NN
 /usr/lib/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 -> libvdpau_nvidia.so.190.NN
