  I don't know if this is at all the right approach. I mean if things
are written in news entries and got online, they shouldn't be changed

  I think visitors associate them with a message posted at a specific
time by a specific group/person. So changing them afterwards doesn't
feel good to me. Instead of modifying the existing messages, posting
new ones should IMHO be the preferred way of getting updated information
out. So in this case, a new entry with the main message being the
performance comparison could have been created.

  How do others think about this topic?


Did I miss the performance figures on ffmpeg-devel? I only remember
someone complaining about measurement methods.
