If you want todo monkey-bubble and even have contact with upstream thats
great! Plenty of other stuff for me to package / spend time on. It was
just that I've been spending some hours on monkey-bubble today and after
seeing the spec linked to from bugzilla I thought it would be a good
idea to update CVS to my version instead of yours, as I already tried to
say you would have been free to pick up from there. I understand now
that you have a much newer SRPM hidden somewhere :)

So I'm fine with you unorphaning and maintaining monkey-bubble, but I
don't want my work to be lost. I'll send you a private mail with my
specfile for 0.3.2 and the 2 patches I have.

The gstreamer patch very probably will only apply against 0.3.2, after
that you can in essence copy src/audio/sound-manager.c to your current
monkey-bubble tree as that file is for 60-70% new after the patch.

About the specfile, please take a look at the installation of the icon
and all the %post and %pre scripts these contain correct handling of the
GConf schemas, the icon and scrollkeeper!

I've just finished my second iteration of the gstreamer-0.10 patch and
it works (yeah!).
