IRC is good for quick discussions, but nobody is there 24/7.
+14. MPlayer contains some external code that is partly patched, partly copied
+ verbatim (see Copyright for details). This code should not be modified
+ unless there is a very good reason. Much of it is maintained upstream.
+ We should be good open source citizens, submit our fixes upstream and keep
+ the differences as small as possible.
+ If you have to modify external code, do not forget to update the diff file
+ with our local changes.
Also read DOCS/tech/patches.txt !!!!
We think our rules are not too hard. If you have comments, contact us.
