There are some differences between vlc-2.1.5-r1.ebuild vlc-2.1.9999.ebuild.
I don't know, do we still need the patch?
What is with +libsamplerate ?

Comment 2 Nick Andrade 2015-05-05 05:43:33 UTC
Hi Jospezial, with both 2.2.0 and 2.2.1 available, is there a specific reason you want to update the 2.1.x line of VLC?  We are trying to get 2.2.1 stabilized at this point, but we're open to older versions if there's a specific unmet need.
Comment 3 Nick Andrade 2016-02-22 21:08:34 UTC
With VLC 2.2.1-r1 stable and 2.2.2 in unstable, I don't want to re-introduce any 2.1.x versions into Portage.
