A less important issue; but I think a clear stance on use of
Github/Gitorious and their pull request development model would be
useful. I think it is clear that in general many people here do not
like it, and repeated comments on the FFmpeg Github page discourage
it. However, a user checking out README.md (which is the document
people see on Github) does not have an explicit note on this; and
instead only a hyperlink to the documentation which again lacks full
clarity on this point. My own proposed solution is an added line to
README.md clearly stating that FFmpeg does not do pull requests from
Github, and instead that we use the mailing list. This will hopefully
reduce the number of pull requests on Github; thus avoiding
fragmentation of development discussion.
