  gstreamer/rhythmbox submits invalid Disc IDs to MusicBrainz (Trusty

Status in gst-plugins-base1.0 package in Ubuntu:
Status in rhythmbox package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Gstreamer calculates an ID for Audio CDs and optionally submits it to MusicBrainz.
  This enables programs to find the corresponding metadata for a CD on MusicBrainz.

  Gstreamer < 1.3.1 doesn't do this correctly for CDs with data tracks,
  leading to invalid Disc IDs being submitted to the MusicBrainz

  This is reported upstream in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=708991
  and fixed in gstreamer 1.3.1. The corresponding patch is supplied as an attachment here.
  Trusty Tahr is using 1.2.x and there is no new release on that branch.
  Trusty Tahr is still supported until 2019. It would be really nice if that can be fixed.

  The bug surfaces as a problem in Rhythmbox because starting with 2.97
  this uses gstreamer for MusicBrainz Disc ID handling.
