the rebuild is almost over. There are two packages that haven't been 

cinelerra-cv - doesn't build with external ffmpeg, solution is to build 
with the internal one(Daniel what do you think about that?)

moonlight - i didn't even touch on it since it doesn't build (need some 
mono stuff at build) and Daniel Isenmann said that he will move in 
extra. Maybe now is a good opportunity and upload it in testing
