ive heared this often enough now to put garlic and holy water on my shopping
list. Anyone has a few silver bullets just in case that doesnt work?

i truely belive it makes no difference at all.
But the time wasted on libmpcodecs makes a difference.
So ill wait the 48h and if someone comes forth with a patch then ill wait
until that is applied and done otherwise and assuming the absence of
disagreements ill update my patch to what is in mplayer

Seriously i should have the backlogs first
More seriously there should be public backlogs
Most seriously the log bot should still be running

license is in the file headers (i know that without checking as diego has
commit rights there), license should be GPL for most if not all
my wrapper is GPL too and is based on GPL code from vf.c
Iam against relicensing without the benefiting companies donating to the
foundation and the author.

about the wiki i can help if you remind me once the code is in and the dust
has settled
