I have some questions on the lives package:

 - it build depends on
   frei0r-plugins-dev[!kfreebsd-i386 !kfreebsd-amd64 !hurd-i386 !arm !powerpc],

   However it seems to be available on arm and powerpc:

>> rmadison -u qa frei0r-plugins-dev
frei0r-plugins-dev | 1.1.22git20090409-2 |       testing | amd64, armel, hppa, 
i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc
frei0r-plugins-dev | 1.1.22git20090409-2 |      unstable | alpha, amd64, armel, 
hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc

   have you tested lives on any of the excluded packages and verified
   that it does work without frei0r-plugins-dev? If not, I think the
   arch restrictions can be simplified.

 - lives depends on libdirac-encoder0, and libdirac-decoder0. Should
   that be pulled in automatically via shlibs?

 - it build depends on python. why? I didn't find a check in the
   configure script for that.

 - package descriptions could be improved. typos and content-wise.

 - it seems to be able to use cdda2wav. In debian we have a fork named
   icedax. Is the current package to use icedax instead of cdda2wav?

 - what limitations does the lives package have without trancode,
   mencoder and mjpegtools?  All of them are available in ubuntu but not
   in debian. Perhaps these can be documented in README.Debian.
