I think at this point there are still more people subscribed to
ffmpeg-devel than to ffmpeg-issues. As I said, the plan was always to
fill in an issue if the problems did not get resolved quickly.

My statement about visibility above referred to FFmpeg's Roundup
installation, not to MPlayer's Bugzilla.
I haven't checked out the new tracker in detail, but so far I'm
not terribly impressed. However, I have no interest in starting flamage
on the subject and I will reserve judgement until I have used it more
BTW, my attempts to create an account on the tracker are failing
