    video-info: implement GstVideoInfo as boxed type
    GstVideoInfo usually is created on the stack, but boxed type can be useful
    for bindings.

Please, don't merge new APIs without updating the documentation. It's very hard to find after ward. All the Since marker are missing and the documentation is not update. Please provide a patch.

Read more closely my comment here. I added the "Since" markers to the docs before merging.

And we don't add documentation for the standard GObject macros.
