Yes, that's right :), I think you also remarked that I am an expert of 
careless mistakes :(.
I am still at the bottom of the Git learning curve, being more used to 
the GitHub PR things (which IMO avoids well to do a mess with upstream 
Additionally, I think that it does not worth it to take risks (including 
the risk of compromised machine) about giving me write rights with the 
only few patches I send. It would be another story if I become more 
active on FFmpeg code in the future.

I kindly request a maintainer to push one (the latest one?) of the DPX 
patches in this thread (i.e. right I am uncomfortable pushing to FFmpeg 
repo directly, I would do it only if it is the only method for having my 
patches pushed upstream after review due to no current maintainer 
willing to push them), as well as reviewing then push (if they are fine) 
the ones related to FFV1 [1]
