Are there any plans to make GstIndex API public again? It was made
"private" about a year ago.
Or is it considered deprecated in the long term without any views to
become public again?

I've seen all instances of that API across gst-plugins-* commented out.

The reason I'm asking is that I'm looking into Fluendo Timeshifter which
has it's core functionality underpinned by GstIndex API. Is there
anything else you'd suggest to use instead GstIndex which this plugin
could be ported to?

I'm also considering to write my own timeshifter plugin which would take
advantage of mpegtsparser and queue2. In this situation I would have to
implement an "indexer" and a "seeker". In this case the pugin would be
MPEG-TS agnostic. Is there anything you would suggest to look at in this
