Description Stefan Sauer (gstreamer, gtkdoc dev) 2009-02-15 14:32:17 UTC
struct _GstPluginFeature has a member plugin_name which is marked as private. Imho thats the only way to get from a plugin feature back to the plugin. I would like to make it public either via,

1.) mark it as public (people already access the field anyway)
2.) add const gchar* gst_plugin_feature_get_plugin_name(GstPluginFeature*)
3.) add gobject properties for rank,name and plugin-name (plugin-name will be read-only).

Any opinions?

There's also a private plugin member now. I'd vote for 2) to get the plugin and plugin_name.
