Subject: x264: not for debian -> mpeg patent stuff

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x264, ftp.debian.org
Severity: serious

Hi

oh meh, sorry for this mess, I shouldnt have allowed this package to go
into Debian main in the first place. Now - it contains mpeg4 stuff, try
googling for "mpeg4 patent" once and you know why it needs to go out.
(And also because the general debian way is to not include known
enforced patent stuff into the archive).

(Search result #1 is http://petition.eurolinux.org/pr/pr18.html )

Package seems to only have one rdepends, same maintainer, so shouldnt be
too hard to get removed. For now I schedule it (for me) to do it
somewhere on Saturday, so you have a little bit of time left. :)

bye Joerg
Only those that dont do anything dont make any mistake
