Bug Description

Source/BInary: morituri

Uses outdated gstreamer0.10 Specifically src:gst-plugins-good0.10 is a dependency of this package.

Popcon shows that 8 people might use this package regularly (out of 1762 installs).

bryan@desktop:~$ reverse-depends src:morituri
No reverse dependencies found
bryan@desktop:~$ reverse-depends -b src:morituri
No reverse dependencies found

With a lot of gst0.10 removed, this package is already more limited in what it can do. It's a cd ripper, which we have many alternatives for.

There does seem to be some upstream work on this, but not sure of state- https://github.com/JoeLametta/whipper/issues/2

To be more accurate: morituri is an *accurate* CD ripper, for which you have no alternatives. Well, you have Windows and EAC.

So removing a package from the 16.04 repo renders a status 'fix released'? Sounds a little odd to me. Besides, the package from 15.10 (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/wily/amd64/morituri/0.2.3-1) installs just fine on 16.04.

Never mind, the 'fix' is in line with the bug description.
