Sending a patch on this list is neither necessary nor sufficient to
satisfy the requirements of the LGPL. You need to either distribute
binaries and sources together or provide an offer to distribute sources
on request to people to whom you distribute binaries. Sending sources
here is not sufficient; you need to distribute to those people to whom
you distribute binaries (expecting them to find it on the list, and
depending on list archives to keep it available without explicit
agreement, is not sufficient). Nor is it necessary because you haven't
sent binaries to this list. You also need to distribute the whole
sources, just a patch isn't enough (though not many will care in
practice as long as FFmpeg sources remain easily available elsewhere).
