I wouldn't mind mentoring animated GIF for example (though for a
full project more is needed).
I also didn't get any opinions on my proposal which I think I could
mentor: Fixing up several (known and unknown) bugs and issues with
the MPEG4 decoder, comparing its behaviour with other encoders/decoders
and possibly adding compatibility mode and documentation for differences
with other decoders (in particular with the official MS reference one
which as far as I can tell is thoroughly broken but due to being shipped
as reference regularly causes people to think FFmpeg is broken).
