[Pkg-sugar-devel] Bug#813258: sugar-record-activity: Should sugar-record-activity be removed?

I agree, in Debian as it stands, sugar-record-activity must be removed
when gstreamer is removed.

There was no upstream bug, so I've raised #4933 on bugs.sugarlabs.org
for porting Record to GStreamer 1.0.  A dependency is porting to GTK+
3, which was first raised four years ago as #3738.  Yes, very slow.

Not volunteering to maintain GStreamer 0.10.

Sugar Labs resources were displaced to their benefit while GStreamer
0.10 was maintained by others, but when maintenance stops so too does
that benefit.  The same can be said now of GTK+ 3 and GStreamer 1.0;
their continued maintenance displaces resources.

I agree that the old code is becoming progressively more dangerous to
run, but ignorance of that danger is common, and it won't be solved by
stating it.
