  Transforms the loose enumeration of issues that was to far below
in the text into a more verbose paragraph at the top. The new text
also mentions the possibility to propose new types of issues to
track on the development mailing list.

 FFmpeg uses Trac for tracking issues, new issues and changes to
 existing issues can be done through a web interface.
+Issues can be different kinds of things we want to keep track of
+but that do not belong into the source tree itself. This includes
+bug reports, patches, feature requests and license violations. We
+might add more items to this list in the future, so feel free to
+propose a new `type of issue' on the ffmpeg-devel mailing list if
+you feel it is worth tracking.
 It is possible to subscribe to individual issues by adding yourself to the
 Cc list or to subscribe to the ffmpeg-trac mailing list which receives
 a mail for every change to every issue.
