Description Daniel Pielmeier gentoo-dev 2010-03-10 21:08:52 UTC
Development of dvdauthor seems to have stalled since 2007 but there is a fork [1] which seems quite active.

The maintainer of the fork has now become the official maintainer of dvdauthor.

I recommend including dvdauthor-0.6.18 ebuild masked by KEYWORD. I regularly
see bug reports on the dvdauthor list against the ancient unmaintained
versions (eg. 0.6.14) which are of course dismissed.
The new maintainer has long ago taken over, is active, and mainly seems
to be focused on fixing bugs.

libpng is needed in any case

I would be careful of any dvdauthor past 0.6.18 as the
developer has made an API change which breaks everything.
(It has to do with his pet peeve about video format
naming/selection.)
So, you either have to specify this on the command line (the
part that breaks existing tools.) Or follow his scheme:

I don't see a problem here. It is just about setting an environment variable or putting a file in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME. Software changes and this is what comes with version bumps.

There were so many changes so I thought a diff does not make sense, but if you insist.

0.6.18 is in the tree

Why not adding 0.7.0 and why did you drop the libpng-1.5 patch?

I didn't add 0.7.0 yet because of comment #7.  And dropping the patch, my bad.

0.7.0 works perfectly fine and this change does _not_ break everything. Either specify the VIDEO_FORMAT environment variable or place the file video_format with your desired format in the proper place. In git (1) there is also a change where you can specify the format in the dvdauthor xml control file.

I second that. I've tried version 0.7.0 with Daniel's ebuild and it seems to be working fine.
