we can also give suggestion via email. IME the barrier to actually
review and post comments is lower when using email than putting it in
VCS and have fellow team members to clone/update the repo first, locate
the affected package, copy relevant parts to an email,etc.

Right, can you perhaps post a diff of README.Debian to this list? You
can still commit locally, and use 'git commit --amend' to improve the

I'd like to keep the ffmpeg-debian source package name until we are
positive that this is going to work in debian. Don't get me wrong, the
naming of the ffmpeg package are confusing at best, but I'd like to
cleanup the whole mess in a single step. The reason for that is that the
unstripped packages are published in ubuntu for a couple of releases
now, and we need to (well, at least I really want to) provide a proper
upgrade path for users already using libavcodec-unstripped-52 packages.

Otherwise, the notes for debian/changelog look fine!
