[00:56] <DonDiego> mmu_man: you're going to clean up the beos ifdef 
[00:56] <mmu_man> yes

[22:10] <DonDiego> mmu_man: could you please remove the beos hackery 
from libavformat headers?
[22:14] <mmu_man> yes I got your mail
[22:14] <mmu_man> sorry I'm so tired atm I don't even find time to code
[22:14] <mmu_man> will do
[22:14] <DonDiego> i'm tempted to do it myself, but breakage would 
surely be the result ;)
[22:15] <DonDiego> i talked this over with mans the other day
[22:15] <DonDiego> the policy is going to be to accept no os-specific 
hackery in normal files
[22:15] <DonDiego> it has to be limited to some headers or files
[22:15] <DonDiego> that hide it
[22:16] <DonDiego> or configure magic and similar
[22:16] <mmu_man> yes it's cleaner
[22:16] <DonDiego> we've already cleaned up almost the whole build 

[22:16] <DonDiego> mr beos has arrived
[22:17] <DonDiego> mmu_man: what about the beos cleanup you promised? 
[22:17] <mmu_man> half done
[22:17] <mmu_man> hi :)
[22:17] <DonDiego> excellent news
[22:17] <DonDiego> and hi :)
[22:17] <mmu_man> I was wondering how to handle the arpa/inet.h thingy

It only wasted my little time answering instead of coding.
