Would you please expand this part more. What have you negotiated and
what haven't been done?

For now I'll try to be constructive:

1. Do you have a commit right to git and could you find a(nother)
committer who is willing to put higher priority to review and apply
patches sent from FFmpeg to Libav.

AFAIR Libav have rule that a patch must be approved by 2 developers.
Some people have already pointed specific patches that have been sent
to libav and haven't been reviewed.

2. Can you remove the ban on FFmpeg developers from the libav maillist
and irc channels?
Most importantly, Michael's.
