I don't remember offhand whether this patch has been applied or not..

The H.264 alignment thing from David Miller is still pending.  IIRC
Michael approved it modulo some testing.  Would be nice if somebody
could adopt, test and apply this patch.

The same goes for the other patches that Michael approved.  Let's try to
distribute the load a bit better.

This one is still outstanding and rather severe.  A mail with a dirty

Also settled, fixing this requires big restructuring or performance
loss.  It will have to remain unfixed for the moment.

One thing that I have overlooked are the regression tests.  The ffserver
regression tests fail currently even on x86, on PPC regression tests are
completely broken, dunno about other platforms.  Putting out a release
that does not pass its own regression tests would be quite embarassing,
so this should IMO be addressed.  At least x86 should work.

Anything that I have missed?  Otherwise I think we're really getting
