Another status update: it seems that progress hat pretty much stalled
since a couple of weeks, which means that we are likely to miss this
libav9 for raring. I would find this very disappointing, given the
many great improvements that have been integrated into this release.

On the plus side, a fix for blender is currently being prepared in
pkg-multimedia for debian/experimental: -
thanks to Matteo F. Vescovi, who managed to get upstream have a closer
look at this.

However, there are still many packages to fix left. Help on this
project would be greatly appreciated!
