Also moves should be documented in public ideally (its not a must have but a wish)
if done by a script the executed commands can easily be loged and posted
to ffmpeg-dev once in a while. If done by hand under bash the history file
can be greped for mv and incoming and the result after quick look posted
from time to time.
This would finally end the "i cant find my file" problem as google will
index such mails with the mv commands

Frequently ignored awnser#1 FFmpeg bugs should be sent to our bugtracker. User
questions about the command line tools should be sent to the ffmpeg-user ML.
And questions about how to use libav* should be sent to the libav-user ML.
