i just read in irc that there are about 30-40 ubuntu bugs.

so ubuntu users will rely on external repo like getdeb and there they will get 1.1 too. so i dont think there is a need for 1.0.6 for them. the 10.04 ubuntu comes in about 14 days. i have my doubts if they will accept a 1.0.6 or a 1.1.

Package: vlc (1.0.2-1ubuntu2.1) [universe] 

that is how old?
2009-09-22 and VLC 1.0.5 is from 2010-01-31

Package: vlc (1.0.5-2ubuntu1) [universe]

so if ubuntu users want a fixed vlc they need getdeb or so. other possibility is another distro, which im really thinking about...

best regards as always :)
