The problem is:
The new kdenlive requires the new versions of mlt and mlt++ libraries
but those new versions of mlt and mlt++
break compatibility with older versions. So imagine an application other
than kdenlive which uses mlt and mlt++.
If I update mlt and mlt++ to their latest versions in Pardus 2008
repository, and a user chooses to *only* update
mlt and mlt++ by chance, the new versions of the libraries will be
installed and all the applications that have been
compiled against their older versions will be unfunctional.

It resides here:http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/playground/ozan/desktop/kde4/kdenlive-kde4
You have to compile mlt and mlt++ fromhttp://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2009/devel/multimedia/tv/
mlt will need frei0r-plugins, you also have to compile it from:http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2009/devel/multimedia/library/frei0r-plugins/
The dependencies which don't have "releaseFrom=...." in pspec.xml don't
need a specific version so
you can install those packages from package-manager.
For compiling the pisi packages, just checkout the repository:
svn co http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2009/devel
pisi build 2009/devel/multimedia/tv/mlt/pspec.xml -vd
this will fail if you don't have some dependencies installed. If it
fails, then you install or compile that dependency and then start again.
