Apologies for simplistic questions...

So "git clone git://git.videolan.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg.git" points
to master... yes?

So if I understand, when version 0.9.2 releases, this will simply
merge the master, yes?

And to use version.sh, looks like something like this is correct usage:

     for lib in lib* ; do [ -d $lib ] || continue ; echo -n "$lib: "; ./version.sh $lib ; done

So if I understand, './version.sh libavcodec' returns the version
for ffmpeg as a whole?

So today's version is ffmpeg-N-37142-g668494a?
