Description Guillaume Desmottes 2016-06-02 11:08:59 UTC
These new flags have been merged to core but not yet released. What is our policy about this? Should we first wait for the next unstable release and bump the dep before starting to use it in master?

use MAY_BE_LEAKED flag

With those all tests pass with the leaks tracer.

gst-plugins-* master depends on core master, we can merge immediately.
