The project index page
claims that a release is comming soon but I noticed that this index page 
hasn't been edited since September 28, 2002 (more than 6 months ago).

Question 1:
What's up with gst-record? Is it a dead project or has it been sidelined 
for some other reason? Are there any near term plans for an initial 
release of gst-record?

Also, lately I've been wanting to convert all my home video tapes to VCD 
and SVCD format. I'd even be happy to contribute a bit of code to help 
get it done but I'd like to start with projects that are close enough 
that I could reasonably expect to complete the task by this Christmas... :)

Question 2:
Are there sufficent gstreamer based applications in active development 
now that one could reasonably expect to be able to do a video tape to 
VCD conversion with only gstreamer based applications by the end of this 

Thanks in advance for your thoughts, comments and last but not least 
wild and crazy predictions of the future.
