though it makes only sense if libav is also using it, spliting
ffmpeg development mails up across 2 lists isnt a great idea ...

maybe mails could be CC-ed or automatically forwarded to ffmpeg-devel ?

i can setup a mailing list on ffmpeg.org if people want
also, technically it would be easiest to just use ffmpeg-devel itself
all ffmpeg developers are already subscribed and quite a few libav
people as well ...
