Just so you know, I thought I would help out with the packaging of libvdpau so
I've setup the packaging for it. You can find it here.


The packaging should be moved somewhere in a git repository maintained by the
Debian NVIDIA Maintainers team.

Anyway, this packages libvdpau-0.2. This addresses the concerns at [1].

One concern I have is with the trace library, libvdpau_trace.so. If this
library is not going to supply any versioning, than this library should reside
in a subdirectory in /usr/lib. For example, we could follow the same scheme
adopted by pulseaudio, have the trace library installed in

If the library is to be ABI compatible across different revisions, than
versioning info should be added to the library instead.
