 media-video/vlc-0.9.10:arts

There is a bug with ffmpeg for ppc which is blocking vlc-1.0.2 stabilization.
Please, consider just dropping arts support from 0.9.10 instead of removing the
ebuild. The ffmpeg bug isn't simple enought to be fixed for the end of the week.

Thanks.

And the unreasonable goal is done.

kde-base/arts is masked, remaining unmasked ebuilds fixed, and USE arts
is temporarily masked in base/use.mask until kde-base/* is wiped out of
KDE 3.5.10.

And completely unreasonable. Some of us have a life.

Denis, wondering why the hurry.

No mandatory requirement for getting involved.

cla, volkmar, and Mr_Bones_ helped around today already, the list got a
lot shorter. Thanks guys :)

As for the hurry, that's pretty much been the topic for quite a while
now? KDE3 removal, which arts is part of, but not many are taking into
account for. I wonder how many times it needs to be repeated, it seems
to be news everytime for someone.
