Source: gstreamer0.10
Version: 0.10.36-1
Severity: serious
Justification: Bug #694525
Control: block 694525 by -1

src:gstreamer0.10 was last built against GLib 2.30, and contains public
structs (at least GstCollectPads2) which embed a GStaticRecMutex.

On most 32-bit platforms (notably armel, armhf, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390
and sparc), the size of GStaticRecMutex changed between GLib 2.30 and 2.32;
this resulted in bugs like #683012. Because that was a while ago, upstream
recommend rebuilding everything that's affected against the new GLib and
carrying on with the "new" ABI.

Because gstreamer0.10 has Multi-Arch: same packages, a binNMU is undesirable,
so it would be better to make a sourceful upload as a pseudo-binNMU.

See #694525 for further discussion.
