Hello,

currently, gstreamer-0.10.36 fails its tests on all three platforms. As we
have the latest version 1.4.5 and nothing depends on the old version any more,
I think we can safely remove it (together with gst-plugins-base-0.10).

In fact, this was my motivation for commit 710f3ce44, which removed our
last remaining user of gstreamer-0.10.x. However, we might want to add
some software in the future that still needs gstreamer-0.10.x.

We could still add them from the version control system if they are needed
again; right now, it is not very motivating to debug packages that do not
build, but do not seem to have any use.

FYI I've been working on Audacity and all its dependencies today, and
got irritated by the gstreamer-0.10 package which apparently never had a
successful build. Was about to send a bug report... :-)

(It's an optional dependency for wxwidgets.)

It has been built before. For x86_64:
"Last successful build 2015-01-16 13:52:19
First broken build 2015-02-05 13:07:42"

Oh never mind, I thought Guix would use an old binary substitute, but of
course that doesn't make sense (it wouldn't be an actual substitute to
the current expected output).
