There sure was. A discussion, a decision, and a patch, all without opposition until
months later when they were going to be made effective.
Unlike some of these avfilter changes you're pushing, which went in despite having
people questioning them.

That patch was a dependency for the one we're talking about here. With the dependency
blocked, the following one is just as blocked. Last i checked, you didn't re-implement
it without the FFFrameQueue api to free it from said blockage.

More "I'm right, you're wrong, and I'm simply letting you know it" attitude.
That sure helps you argument.

I made three questions. All of them where ignored, and what i got instead was a "You
are late, this is not new code". Do you honestly consider discussing with you will get
us anywhere if that's your first reaction at a normal and completely valid reply to
your patch?

What nagging? You got dissenting opinions and technical concerns about your code from
more than one developer. You in turn ignored and belittled most if not all of them,
and those behind them as well.
You're the only person on this list that constantly reacts like this. This project
would be dead and lacking contributors if every single person handled reviews even
remotely like you.
