It was a long ago when I installed packages from d-m.o so I can't
remember right now. I just put (in apt.sources):
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main contrib
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org unstable main contrib

and forgot about it.

When I encounter conflict in apt/itude I know how to resolve it or just
don't care if it isn't important.

So, I appreciate Christian Marrilat effort with d-m.o when Debian was not
unable to package all codecs and apps due to patent and licencing
'issues'. Again, I don't blame Debian for that.

I just want to tell that the d-m.o was and I think it would be useful
just because Debian cannot ship all software/codecs which have
patent/licence problem.

Kind regards,  Milan
