There is a huge basic misunderstanding here.
I suspect you assume I want FFmpeg to be developed the way I describe it
but in fact I am just explaining that this very "stabilization" (that may happen
for many other projects, I don't know) simply does not exist here: I am here for
more than twenty main releases and every single one was just another
snapshot. The exact timing of the release was sometimes discussed (so
that patches were delayed or pushed) but no other tests than the daily
regression tests were done.
(In addition, I stopped asking for regression fixes before releases because
they were explicitely ignored / refused a few releases ago.)

It is not a lie, current FFmpeg does contain bugs but less than any release.
