Description Thomas Andrews 2020-03-06 14:25:46 CET
Description of problem:
According to a discussion in Bug 26279 our version of Kodi has some functions disabled. It was explained that this was because those functions required dvdcss, which is in our tainted repos, and enabling it would require putting Kodi in the tainted repos, as well.

I am proposing that we do with Kodi as we have with other packages (vlc is a good example), offer the basically functional version we do now, and an additional tainted version for those that require the additional functionality.

I'm suggesting that we offer this tainted version as a backport for Mageia 7, and include it in Cauldron, as well.

Forewarned in the other bug cited above, this is for you I think, Stig.
