I'm adding the "fugly" workaround to our ebuild to at least have DVD playback working for now. I created a ticket upstream at waiting for an official response.

Upstream reported that given bug got fixed in SVN. So I backported the patch:

Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2010-03-19 01:13:52 UTC
Fabio: you need to talk to maintainers before you go touching packages that you have no relationship to.  this is not a request, and this is the last time i mention it kindly.
Comment 6 Fabio Erculiani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-03-19 06:40:31 UTC
Yes sorry. The patch itself is harmless and is a backport from SVN, though.
Comment 7 Joost Ruis 2010-03-19 10:35:49 UTC
"and this is the last time i mention it kindly."

Or else what?
Instead of threatening people come clear.

Are you going to digitally beat up somebody for fixing something you slacked todo?

Get some mental help man.

If you have nothing to add, then please don't comment.  This is not a discussion forum.

I think everything that needs to be said has been.
Comment 9 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2010-03-19 17:27:26 UTC
the obvious next step is that if a Gentoo developer is unable to perform the duties as required, then they lose the developer access
