Providing the vdr part of vdr-xine is no problem. I certainly do not want to
maintain my own xine version for the purpose of patching it with vdr-xine
though. If it was possible to somehow compile the xine plugin without patching
xine itself I could put it into the build service as well. But then another
problem would show up, what xine version to compile for? The SUSE one (fixed
version) or the packman one (changes all the time)? Or maybe it's possible to
somehow create the plugin in a way so it works with multiple xine minor
versions? That's a question for the xine experts.
