|"That an accusation?"
|No perfectly groomed moustache or any amount of fine clothing is going to
|cover up the truth - these plugins are Bad with a capital B.
|They look fine on the outside, and might even appear to get the job done, but
|at the end of the day they're a black sheep. Without a golden-haired angel
|to watch over them, they'll probably land in an unmarked grave at the final
|Don't bug us about their quality - exercise your Free Software rights,
|patch up the offender and send us the patch on the fastest steed you can
|steal from the Confederates. Because you see, in this world, there's two
|kinds of people, my friend: those with loaded guns and those who dig.
|This module contains a set of plugins that aren't up to par compared to the
|rest. They might be close to being good quality, but they're missing something
|- be it a good code review, some documentation, a set of tests, a real live
|maintainer, or some actual wide use. If the blanks are filled in they might be
|upgraded to become part of either gst-plugins-good or gst-plugins-ugly,
|depending on the other factors.
|If the plugins break, you can't complain - instead, you can fix the
|problem and send us a patch, or bribe someone into fixing them for you.
|New contributors can start here for things to work on.
|Other modules containing plugins are:
|contains a basic set of well-supported plugins
|contains a set of well-supported plugins under our preferred license
|contains a set of well-supported plugins, but might pose problems for
|contains a set of codecs plugins based on libav (formerly gst-ffmpeg)
