I have only recently started to follow the FFmpeg mailing list.

If your argument is any pertinent to the discussion, then what you are
saying is that there have been a lot of maintainers that forked FFmpeg
because they didn't want to submit the patches for reviewing and
receive so much bike-shedding. If that's true, can you point to any of
these forks and which maintainer started it?
