Comment 1 Martin Rey 2021-07-28 14:32:09 UTC
This is already fixed in Leap and Factory.

The following Backport codestreams are affected:
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15:Update/vlc
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-15-SP1:Update/vlc

Maybe this could be addressed there, too?

Wolfgang, something you can do for the backports? I'd suggest to inherit Factory's package
