Bug#682010: [mumble] Communication failures due to CELT codec library removal

summary 682010 0
forwarded 682010 http://git.donarmstrong.com/?p=debian-ctte.git;a=blob;f=682010_celt_and_mumble/682010_celt_and_mumble.org

* Issue #682010
** Mumble in unstable/testing currently cannot interact with other clients and servers
   + Due to the removal of celt 0.7.1 (?)
* Possible solutions
** Include celt 0.7.1 as a convenience copy
   + Security Issues with embedded copies
   + Unspecified possible security issues
** Upload a celt 0.7.1 package
   + No maintainer desires to deal with this (apparently?)
   + Unspecified possible security issues
** Use speex instead
   + Server (and clients?) do not select speex as an option unless bandwidth is low
** Use only opus
   + Not yet (?) released upstream
   + May not communicate with non-opus clients
* Open questions
** Can speex be made to be an option?
** Is a convenience copy acceptable, assuming mumble is the only thing with it?
** What are the other clients that we want to make sure the mumble servers can communicate with?
* Involved parties

The above is my current understanding of this bug. Please correct
anything that I've gotten wrong or misunderstood or missed.

If I had a letter, sealed it in a locked vault and hid the vault
somewhere in New York. Then told you to read the letter, thats not
security, thats obscurity. If I made a letter, sealed it in a vault,
gave you the blueprints of the vault, the combinations of 1000 other
vaults, access to the best lock smiths in the world, then told you to
read the letter, and you still can't, thats security.
