[Dev] Clarificaiton: gstreamer git paths and branches in tizen.org

It can be treated as a temporary working branch to work around the issue that "tizen 3.0 mobile build cannot work with gstreamer 1.0.7 in tizen branch". The multimedia team is working on upgrading 3.0 mobile packages for gst 1.0.7 or 1.2.0. Once it's done, this branch can be obsoleted.

Hi, Yan

I am confused with the branch name tizen_2.1_compat in the new git trees which are for tizen 3.0 development. Why not to use "tizen_2.1" and "tizen_2.2" directly?
It's the universal rule for all other tizen packages, and this rule is the basic of many tools supporting. The exceptions will be the trouble, frankly.

Thanks

Hi,

The git paths and branches of gstreamer (and gst-plugins-xxx) are somewhat confusing in tizen.org due to many historical reasons, and here comes a clarification, hopefully it can address some of your confusions.

let's take gst-plugins-base for example, the same rule applies to gstreamer/gst-plugins-base/gst-plugins-good/gst-plugins-bad/gst-plugins-ugly/gst-libav/gst-omx/gstreamer-vaapi.

*  This git path is used for Tizen 2.x only.

*  For Tizen 3.0 development, this git path won't be used.

*  This git path is used for Tizen 3.x and future, for both IVI and Mobile profile.

*  The "tizen_2.1_compat" branch hosts the 0.10.x API version code base from tizen 2.x, while "tizen" branch hosts the 1.x API version code base targeting for tizen 3.x.

*  The "tizen_2.1_compat" branch will generate package with 0.10 suffix in package name, while "tizen" branch will generate package without any suffix, they can co-exist in same OBS project and one image.

*  The "tizen_2.1_compat" branch might be renamed to "tizen_2.x_compat" soon.
