Well, in that case the doc is broken in a worse way. "Bugs and
possilbe improvements or general questions regarding commits are
discussed there" does not even apply to ffmpeg-cvslog, it really
applies to ffmpeg-devel. In that case this patch is still an
improvement over the current situation. ffmpeg-cvslog is pretty much
useless for a dev on daily basis, since he/she can't see the
discussion. If a dev is subscribing to something, ffmpeg-devel gives
far more useful information and IMHO is the preferred mailing list.
However, perhaps the commit message needs rewording due to my misunderstanding.
