it seems noone did at least not on the ML

anyway, iam fine with logs send to a private ML as well, I just think
that developers should be able to follow discussions related to their code
without having to be logged on IRC 24h.

So if the people on IRC agree then it would be nice if you or someone else
could setup some script that does post the log onto some mailinglist.
(for ML creation, if the people on IRC prefer a private ML instead of
ffmpeg-dev contact attila but i think you know that)

of things you dont want and which you would get tomorrow for free anyway
