This may be so, but it should still have been reviewed before your commit in
any case. It is your responsibility to poke people to review it and understand
it and see the usefulness of it before you commit it.

"No one objected" does not mean "ok to commit", as I (and others) have pointed
out to you on IRC in the past (in relation to this bug, even!).
And while you say 'has been available over a year', an actual patch against
core has been available for less than a month (and incidentally most people
were busy releasing core/base, which is a fair bit of work, so your patch
received even less attention than it would have received otherwise).
Again, it is your responsibility to poke people to review things. I know that
it can be frustrating and discouraging from own experience, but that's not an
excuse to just commit stuff IMHO.

Does this have a name yet? If not, I shall call it the
"guerilla-I-committed-it-deal-with-it-now-or-suck-it-up tactic" ;)
More on topic: while I don't have time to look into the entire thing right now,
just looking at the API I think I'd prefer gst_preset_get_preset_names() to
return a NULL-terminated gchar ** - the ownership and type and free-ing of this
is much easier than with a GList (e.g. what's in the GList? Strings? Does the
GList contain strdup'ed strings or not?) (I know other interfaces return a
GList, but I don't think that's a good reason to keep doing it - and bindings
have to special-case this anyway).

this email, why you can't respond via email, how to stop receiving
emails (or reduce the number you receive), and how to contact someone
if you are having problems with the system.
