if this broke compilation somewhere it'd be nice for someone to paste
it so that we can end this dumb argument quickly.

only thing i can find is that it broke linking in mplayer
[23:55:29] <Dark_Shikari> 09:55 < ubitux> revision 25278 has introduced
some linkage error: ffmpeg/libavutil/libavutil.a(mathematics.o): In
function `av_rescale_rnd' << undefined reference to `assert'

you both are fighting over some really dumb things.

mans has a problem with too short commit messages
mans has a problem with michael committing without patch
michael has a problem with mans committing without patch
michael has a problem with mans complaining on irc instead of ml

i realize you guys cant agree. and both of you want ultimatums. but
can you compromise? e.g. mans will only comment on michael on
the list, and michael will post patches before committing ? is that
