the what and where is something id like to hear attilas input too about.
But IMHO we first should look just at roundup+incoming and move all these
to a ffmpeg-bugs/roundup/issueXXXX (that is a existing place where other such
things alraedy are not a new one)

it depends on how much work it is to find the file without that info and how
much work it is to add that info to the page. If some script is used like
i posted such updates are very easy

nothing for now IMHO, let us work on one problem at a time.
but they could be moved to a sample/mplayer-users i dunno, this is mostly
up to attila, what he prefers

This is trivial, my script generats mv command that one could just execute
we similarly can create mkdir and mail commands. And a mail with matching
Subject to roundup will appear on the mailinglist and web based roundup tracker
(we need to test this of course with a single file first)

Its not that you shouldnt use gotos but rather that you should write
readable code and code with gotos often but not always is less readable
