I. - I haven't figured out how to do an exhaustive search on bugzilla. 'OLPC' picks up some; 'XO' picks up some; '461806' picks up some. But let me emphasize once again - bugzilla appears to be aimed at the problems of developers (and isn't optimal for users).

II. - What for me is an inhibitor is the bugzilla section "tell us how to reproduce the problem". I have no desire whatsoever to try to describe how to obtain the Fluendo mp3 codec for an XO, nor how to follow its instructions for seeing if it works. I have even less desire to describe where I obtained a static-linked Mplayer, nor how I have set up my XO for playing movies. [Both the mp3 codec and the Mplayer application work fine in 8.2.1.] What good would it do for me to enter a bugzilla report? A dozen people would ask me for more information, and for more "try this and try that". I have better things to do with my time.

> What do you mean by 'moving
> pictures', do you mean recording video or playing video?

I don't try to record video - so I have no idea if it works or not (see what I mean about being asked questions which I don't know how to answer?). The 'Record' activity does not show me a picture of what the XO camera is supposed to be seeing. The 'watch&listen' activity gives me neither 'sound' nor 'moving pictures'. [IIRC, it can close prematurely.] Mplayer runs, but gives me neither 'sound' nor anything except a blank screen.
