I got this one @kyrios123. Looks like gst-plugins-good didn't sync for some reason. I've bumped it and it should be fixed on the next sync.

@DataDrake still on my test machine although it get installed, the application does not work.
If I run soundconverter from the command line, I get the following message:

SoundConverter 2.1.6
SoundConverter needs python-gstreamer 0.10!

This is maybe it uses R1076 while it should probably use R1077 (which has never been created).

There is another weird thing: The package is build with gstreamer-1.0 but it runs with gstreamer-0.1

@DataDrake is the problem I reported just above is a global issue and if gst-python-0.10 is required, instead of adding this dead package in the repo, I propose to exceptionally build soundconverter 3.0.0-beta1. I tested it on my side and I haven't encountered any problem with it.

It is just a suggestion of course...

@kyrios123 yeah it looks like I had a locally git gst-python-0.10 sorry, it's been way too long since I worked on this apparently. I'm working out the patches now. Cheers.

Part 2:
R2936:7da832177bcd: Fixed mistake with version of gst-python

Part 3:
R1081:50b0c8072d3e: Bump for sync

This has been fixed in unstable and will be available on the next sync. Apologies for the trouble!

Yep, thank you @DataDrake ! :)
