[FFmpeg-devel] [RFC] [PATCH] Cleanup obsoleted libavfilter notes

This patch is provocative on purpose with the intent to stimulate a
discussion about a) how to proceed with the SOC repo and b) to declare
the (external) libavfilter API stable, which means that future API
changes require either a symbol versioning hack or a major bump.

 Libavfilter is the filtering API of FFmpeg. It is the substitute of the
 now deprecated 'vhooks' and started as a Google Summer of Code project.
-Integrating libavfilter into the main FFmpeg repository is a work in
-progress. If you wish to try the unfinished development code of
-libavfilter then check it out from the libavfilter repository into
-some directory of your choice by:
- at example
-   svn checkout svn://svn.ffmpeg.org/soc/libavfilter
- at end example
-And then read the README file in the top directory to learn how to
-integrate it into ffmpeg and ffplay.
-But note that there may still be serious bugs in the code and its API
-and ABI should not be considered stable yet!
