Whatever solution is used, it should not *require* anything beyond the 
current mailing lists except for people with CVS access; meaning, if 
there is a web-based system, it should send copies of new bugs to 
ffmpeg-devel, and of status changes to ffmpeg-cvs.

One advantage of a web-based system for new bug reports is that it could 
check automatically for the usual irritants like non-current build 
numbers, lack of command line, lack of output...

yoyo now between ffmpeg-user and ffmpeg-devel, lets not add to the
