Package: pitivi
Version: 0.93-4
Followup-For: Bug #747009

Dear Maintainer,

this bug is a result of #743585, but as recalled there pitivi is not using
cogl anymore.

To fix the timeline drawing it is enough to apply just two patches from

The second one does not apply cleanly on top of RELEASE-0_93_0 because
it was based on the upstream conversion to pyhton3 (namely the new code
use ".previewers" instead on "previewers" and that causes a patch
conflict in the first hunk), however it's easy to backport it, this can
even be done automatically with "git am -3" and then "git format-patch"

Please consider apply those patches for the time being as we don't know
when a new upstream releases is coming.

If you apply them, then #743585 would not be pitivi concern anymore.

BTW for a "beta" quality software like pitivi it may be worth packaging
git snapshots.
