True, same here..

I'm not that sure.. Usually I find it a pain in the a** to first
subscribe and the write to the mailing list. I'd rather use the internet
if possible..
 Now, looking on the mplayer webpage the FAQ isn't that easy to find.
Most users go through the webpage to download the source, why not put
either 'Documentation' og 'FAQ' in the top menu?
 Another, maybe smaller thing, is that usually when I'm compilling code
and there is trouble, I go into the source catalogue, and look for a
'README' file. However the structure of the MPlayer source tree is the
(to me) less know DOCS directory.. 

Only ideas :)

Haha :) And ofcourse some 'easter-eggs' implemented :)
