Good, now please fix the History to match the truth

it currently says:
Patch development time: 3 days
  2009/01/25 - FFmpeg maintainers notified
  2009/01/27 - Patch developed by FFmpeg maintainers
  2009/01/28 - Public disclosure of vulnerability details by FFmpeg 
  2009/01/28 - Release date of this security advisory

its an outright lie that we where notified on the 25th
your mail that _asked_where_to_ you should send the information was sent
on the 25th, it was stuck in your mailservers for 2 days as ive already told

besides this was a mail asking where to send the vuln info to not anything
that would even have hinted in what part of ffmpeg the issue is, id hardly
call that "notified"
the actual info was sent from you to me Tue, 27 Jan 2009 20:51:13 +0100
i sent you the patch Tue, 27 Jan 2009 22:42:15 +0100
and could have commited it at once but was waiting for you to reply
Thats not what i would be calling 3 days

Anyway, besides calling 2 hours, 3 days iam of course thankfull
about any vuln found.
