Just ship a single mesa-vdpau/etc package? The extra modularity does
not bring you anything.
Comment 1 Stefan Dirsch 2018-02-23 11:24:20 UTC
We've splitted off xvmc/vdpau packages, since at that time xvmc/vdpau support on some graphics hardware was still considered experimental/not stable yet. This may have changed meanwhile.
Comment 2 Stefan Dirsch 2018-02-26 14:11:32 UTC
In order to get rid of the patch we would need to merge (again)

  libXvMC_nouveau + libXvMC_r600


  libvdpau_nouveau + libvdpau_r300 + libvdpau_r600 + libvdpau_radeonsi

and of course make sure, the new package supersedes the old packages. I currently don't see the benefit of doing this. 

And we lose the possibility of declaring some of the old packages stable, i.e. install them by default on appropriate hardware. And others less stable or experimental or no longer well tested and install them not by default.

Finally decided to keep this patch. Therefore closing as WONTFIX.
