It was wishful thinking.

You definitely are a Libav user, as is every ffmpeg developer and
user, as you merge every day whatever change Libav provides.
The fact that you can accept

The point is that this daily merge from Libav to ffmpeg also allows to
fix bugs sometimes and this is good, but the problem is that these
seldom bugfixes remain here while they should be reported to the
original author at least. This should be done in the spirit of open
source contribution, not in the "my project has more features and more

This is my personal opinion of course, doesn't reflect any groups' ideas.
