[Libav-user] Requesting help to port Audacity to recent FFmpeg

Audacity, the digital audio editor used by millions, has import/export
support for a wide range of audio formats using the FFmpeg libraries.
Audacity compiles only against FFmpeg < 1.0 [1]. The FFmpeg libraries
have changed from time to time and Audacity needs non-trivial work to
support any supported FFmpeg version. Sadly, no Audacity developer has
the time and skill to port Audacity to a recent FFmpeg API.

That's why I send this mail to this mailing list to request help. Is
there anyone who has the time and skill to help porting Audacity to the
latest FFmpeg API version?
