There is only 4 packages for plugins instead of 1, right? 

I've a gstreamer0.10 package almost ready and we have discussed about it
on #gnome-debian yesterday. We need to figure what to do with
unversionned binaries and it should be ready to be uploaded. The current
choice is to build a package (gstreamer-tools) from the current stable
ABI (0.10 now by example) for them, with a Depends gstreamer0.10-tools |
gstreamer0.8-tools. What do you think about that? Would gstreamer-tools
the correct name? Or rather -bin?

I've a gst-plugins-base0.10 mostly done too, but we need to sort the
splitting before uploading.

Most of the files are going to -misc.

According to the upstream srpm:

"# base plugins with dependencies

We may want to split those. Loïc would like to stick close to upstream
choices (ie: no over-splitting). According to yesterday's IRC discussion
the split could be -alsa (libgstalsa.so) -gnome (libgstgnomevfs.so) -x
(libgstpango.so, libgstx(v)imagesink.so) and other to -misc. Any opinion
on this topic?

That's a good idea. Maybe you could contact the maintainer about that?
