Are you saying that you stopped to contribute to libavfilter because I
asked you to revert a massive change to the soc repo overlay filter
which was never reviewed and which was breaking critical features
(which I explained I personally need to further develop libavfilter)?

I think that we all should try to be a little less picky and more
collaborative, we're spending more time fighting each other than doing
useful stuff.

Please spend some time documenting the yadif parameters, I'll address
the arch separation concerns soon myself.
