Still outstanding.

I tried merging with Debian, but this has been FTBFS for a fair while
and removed from testing a while ago. I gave up after some 20 minutes
too, and now just removed the package as there are no reverse

Done by Timo.

Not sure why this is on the list -- I see no gstreamer dependency

This is a bit messy -- t-qt5 is an Ubuntu specific split, and neither
t-qt nor t-qt5 have been updated recently. Aside from a Debian
packaging quirk this should mostly be a sync. I put packages into, testing appreciated!

There are no auto-removals in Ubuntu, just some assisted manual
procedure which is painfully slow and apparently not being done any
more at all.

Fixed restricted-extras, removed gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse.

Eww -- there is not a single dependency of that which is *not*
obsolete (pygtk, GTK 2, python-indicate, gconf, gstreamer 0.10, not
even mentioning Python 2 itself), and there's no way that this still
works properly. Removed.

Yes please :-)
