We need an admin and a co-admin for the program. I volunteer to act as
admin, Lou already proposed to act as co-admin, any other volunteers?

Same for the mentored tasks, we need a backup-admin for each task.


Mentored tasks:
- H264 MVC (Michael Niedermayer)
- Animated Portable Network Graphics (APNG) (Paul B. Mahol)
- Misc Libavfilter extension (Stefano Sabatini + Clement Boesch)
- Inverse telecine filter (Clement Boesch)
- Subtitles (Clement Boesch)

I also propose to move all the mentored tasks in the top part of the
page, and list all the unmentored tasks in a dedicated section (1st
tier/2nd tier?).

Please add the tasks that you want to mentor as soon as possible. If
you're not sure about what/if/how you should mentor, feel free to
discuss on this list (or on IRC).
