Hi Sarah,
      First of all thanx for giving that info. While I knew both the
things but not the inter-relationship (sort of) I might have to play a
while with them to understand the thing.
As far as writing to all the lists are concerned, I thought
launchpad-users  was needed as it might have been an oversight
somewhere. I also sent the same to  Ubuntu-devel-discuss as well as
bug-squad for well its sad to see that quite a lot of plugins are in
gstreamer0.10 & wondered why swfdec 0.4 i.e. something like
gstreamer0.10-swfdec isn't there for gutsy. I also searched for
swfdec-mozilla and while there is library of swfdec but no binaries.
I'm looking for something to view flash on firefox-granparadiso &
there just seems to be no solution. Only gnash 0.8 is there and I had
issues with firefox  in that. Would try again with
firefox-granparadiso  & see if its any better though.
        If I understand correctly, swfdec-mozilla would be for viewing
streaming flash in the browser, while the gst-plugins would be for the
applications like Mplayer etc.

       I also looked at swfdec-mozilla which is being maintained by
david schleef but fail to get any more info. as to what is happening
on that front.

 apt-cache madison swfdec-mozilla
swfdec-mozilla |    0.4.3-2 |
gutsy/universe Sources

The universe source was uploaded on 3rd May & nothing after that :( no binary :(

If you or somebody can find some more info. as to the status of either
or both these packages as to what is blocking them or some kind of an
ETA it would be nice. I would love to test & use both of them as &
when they become available.

Sorry for taking your time & this long mail.
