We discussed parallel install, and I think we decided we were going to
version all of the 0.7 tools. Has anyone done that yet ? I consider
that a blocker for releasing 0.7.1

There are a lot of disting fixes; started fixing them one by one.
Currently I have a failing "debug" testsuite, 3 out of 4 testsuites
fails. It doesn't look like it got added with regard to non-srcdir
testsuiting, so I think I might disable the debug testsuite dir for now
and concentrate on the others first, will see.
Will also look at ds's ffmpeg patch.

Actually, I think the reverse is more important. Stable needs a
release, 0.7.1 is just a release that we feel we should make but nobody
is waiting for.
I already commited a few patches to 0.6.3; you can check up on their
status at http://gstreamer.net/bugs/
For bugs to appear on these lists, they just need to be set with their
milestone at 0.6.3
I respectfully ask that I get to review 0.6.3 patches, and if they get
commited, then they should be targeted for 0.6.3, logged in bugzilla for
committal, logged in cvs for committal against that bug number, and an
appropriate patch for 0.7.x be commited as well, after which the bug can
