Somewhat off topic but if we want more bugs to be fixed than what
volunteers are doing then its needed to
either motivate more volunteers somehow or
1. get more sponsors and a real budget (like 100k per year)
2. put bounties on most tickets

I would expect that if one can live of fixing ffmpeg bugs full time,
someone would probably do exactly that
