I have been busy working with the developers (of monkey-bubble) fixing 
bugs, check the gnome cvs log to see.

I have begun work on porting it too gstreamer-0.10, but due to 
University getting in the way of my hacking, I have not progressed far.

gstreamer-0.8 is still in FE as it is needed for other applications, 
gnomebaker comes to mind, so I do not think its a shop stopper that it 
is still using 0.8.

The fixed srpm I have on my HDD at home is made witha snap shot from the 
cvs tree, as many fixes have been made to monkey-bubble. The srpm in 
bugzilla was a naive fix up.

Also, it was not imported into cvs as I only got sponsored about 2 weeks 
ago and at the time of making that srpm, I was not sponsored.

I would prefer to continue with monkey-bubble, but if you feel 
different, then we can discuss this off list.
