Description Bruce Schultz 2017-07-22 23:42:05 UTC
In the media-sound/beets-1.4.3 ebuild, the ogg flag is used to pull in media-plugins/gst-plugins-ogg (but only when replaygain and gstreamer flags are also enabled)

But gst-plugins-ogg only has a 0.10 version, so the result is that gstreamer-0.10 is an indirect dependency, where the gstreamer flag depends on gstreamer:1.0 only.

The ogg plugin looks to have been added to gst-plugins-base:1.0, so I think the simplest solution is to change the ogg depend from gst-plugins-ogg to gst-plugins-base:1.0[ogg]
