Hello everybody

As probably some of you already know, I've coded VLC & MPlayer
backends for Phonon at http://code.google.com/p/phonon-vlc-mplayer/

I've been in contact with Matthias Kretz the maintainer of Phonon. He
suggests me sometimes ago (with other people on the net) to push it on
KDE repo + to get an SVN account.

Unfortunately I cannot get in touch with Matthias, I guess he is in
vacation or something.
I have some patches for Phonon that need to be reviewed (and break
binary compatibility).

Here is the copy of the mail that I've sent to Matthias:

You suggested me to host my code in KDE's svn repo.
I will apply for an account at
http://techbase.kde.org/Contribute/Get_a_SVN_Account (username:
tkrotoff) and give your name as a "mentor".

I read with interest you post about the new home for Phonon and I'm
happy that you have decided to make Phonon independent from kdelibs.
You also asked for people helping you with testing the build-system
under Windows and I can definitely help you for that as I mainly
develop under Windows (MinGW + Visual C++ 2005).

I've released a 0.1.0 version of phonon-vlc-mplayer and here is my
repo organization:
http://code.google.com/p/phonon-vlc-mplayer/source/browse/trunk/ do
you think it's OK?
As you see I've a copy of phonon source code since you didn't reply me
about this patch:
Can you check this aswell, thx

Another thing that might interest you and related to the first small
patch that I sent to you:
