My only suggestion is to use a more descriptive subject next time (just
copy it from your patch).

ffmpeg-devel has a good amount of incoming patches and it's  not
uncommon for developers to forget or miss submissions. As Gyan mentioned
consider replying to your message with "ping" as a reminder on

The author of blackdetect is no longer active so it is up to others to
step in and decide to review.

Using "git format-patch" and attaching is just fine. We know that not
everyone is able or willing to setup "git send-email" (and it took me
some time to get off of my ass and do so).
