Hi everybody,

I hope it's the good mailing list to request package update (the bug
tracker only says 'the Mailing List'), and I'm sorry if I'm wrong.

VLC has been flagged out-of-date on 2018-02-07 (2 weeks ago).
Can you update it to v3.0.0, please?

Thank you in advance!

PS: Sorry for task #57595.
VLC is already updated.

It is currently in staging.
As you can see, I wrote my post at 12:03:28 UTC, and commit 8fcde2c at 12:30:29 UTC. I was tracking the Git activity for this package, and I would never have posted if it was already the case. :)

Yes, sometimes even Arch Linux takes longer than 47 minutes after an
upstream release to update packages. Two weeks for a major version
update that changes lots of dependencies including a move from Qt4 to
Qt5, *and* provides libraries against which *other* packages need to be
rebuilt? Yeah, this takes time.

I'm sorry if my intention was misunderstood.
I know it can take time after a major upstream update. Simply, due to no sign of activity for v3.0.0 on staging/testing, I thought it had been forgotten.
I *really* appreciate work done by mainteners, and it was not a reproach.

Thank you Levente Polyak for the update.
