> Looking at the 'svn log', I see recent activity in both. So what's the policy ?

> In its current state, the libavfilter in the ffmpeg HEAD is not
> consistent with doc/filters.texi (which explicitly mentions
> 'movie'), and does not allow the specification of two independent
> sources (unless another method than 'movie' exists), making the
> 'overlay' filter useless except for toy fork-and-converge graphs.

Patch ready for commit:

You have to wait for the "committers" to commit it.
