No official VLC repository is hosted on there. Make sure that you are in sync with git.videolan.org's vlc.git since this is where patches need to be based on order to be mergeable.

This is not supported, since VLC is not compiled using Xcode. We are using lldb or gdb on the command-line, which is essentially the same Xcode does, just without the GUI.
