Look, I know you try to be nice and helpful, thanks, but the problem
is not to find that information, the point is to have all the most
important stuff and everything FFmpeg-specific (especially policy-like
stuff like when/if to use push -f) in a concise form,
in one place, and that all current FFmpeg developers will trivially
and quickly be able to find - even if they haven't been active the last few months.
