In the Debian case:

bullseye: 1.0 API
bookworm (about to be released): 1.1 API

bullseye has security support until July 2024, so that's the moment
where (from the Debian pov) we can definitely get rid of the 1.0 API.

For bookworm it would be great if we could switch to the 2.0 API
before the final release, but the timing is complicated because
the distribution is about to enter hard freeze. I'm talking to the
Debian release team to see their opinion. But we would need Cog and
gst1.0-wpe to be ported to the new API.
