Or if anybody spots it while reviewing the commit...
Anyway, I agree with the point you make. My former reply was only
meant about the duties of maintaining code in FFmpeg and that we have
a Wiki page that describes the responsibilities.
Besides, if I am not mistaken, Michael just committed reg tests
for 1.0 --- though I would not see it as a necessity demanded
by his maintainer role! I would rather say that he could do it
and agreed with your point that test coverage of some older
version of the codec makes sense.
