I need the overlay for testing lavfi sources. Also there are people
which are using libavfilter soc and breaking a previously working
feature looks not nice. I wonder if it would be a good idea to
intentionally break some feature in the soc repo (or simply keep it
outdated) in order to foster some contributions, but I'm quite sure
that even that won't help (people would rather keep their private
hacks and updates rather than do the effort to contribute to the

Well I mainly work on "my features" as noone is forcing me to do
otherwise or is dictating me on what should I "focus", if you think
there are other features which "matter more" or are "more important"
you're welcome to work on them. Or you can pay someone for working on
that, or support him, or send him a postcard, or suggest him or ask

Anyway since the integration is the objective you should focus your
work more on SVN integration than on soc filters. I already gave a

from that, but there are still some problems related to timestamps
which need to be addressed before.
