The repo authentifications are not shared anymore. Ie someone
who has commit rights to the MPlayer repo doesnt automatically
get commit rights to the FFmpeg repo, and vice versa.

There are currently 28 developers who are allowed to commit on both
FFmpeg and MPlayer, 40 FFmpeg only and 26 MPlayer only.

But anyways. We should not fight over the colour of our foundation,
but rather what we want to do (yes, i know that there has been
some lengthy discussion). But, keep in mind that the first thing
should be to get the foundation up and running. You can always
fight later whether you want to have a more FFmpeg centric agenda
or not. And don't forget that the agenda is defined by those who
do something and not by those who talk about it.
