There is room. The machine is meant to be enough for the next
few years, so it would be really a shame if we had to go
back to sf for this :)

Having a connection to ffmpeg is enough ;)

Slownes, problems with cvs not working, slownes, etc pp.

sf is nice if you have a small project and you dont have
the financial support for your own server infrastructure.
ffmpeg (and mplayer) is quite a big project and needs a bit
more than sf can give us. And because we are big, we can
get some support to run our own infrastructure.

Mind you, i'm not saying that sf is bad, it's just not
suited for us.

BTW: sf cvs got twice as fast after ffmpeg switched to
the mphq cvs server :-)

So, if you need anything on mphq, ask Diego, Mans or me.
If it's somewhat reasonable, we'll see that you get it.
