    If a majority of ffmpeg devels want us to undo this, i am not opposed
    if someone handles the technical side and also explains users how to
    fix their checkouts up
    .....
    But as I said previously ffmpeg is a democratic project, ffmpeg
    developers who plan to contribute to ffmpeg in the future and thus
    are affected by how the main tree looks can vote"

    then 2.20 minutes and 4 votes later

    " Tue Mar 22 22:28:44 CET 2011
    Good these are enough votes

    We will undo"

    i guess those "developers who plan to contribute to ffmpeg in the future"he's so desperate to recruit now where to slow
    And if you had actually read why it was undone you would have seen that it was not because of "naysayers" or because of people not wanting -mt. It was because of the whole merge broke history, because the ffmpeg-mt branch seems to have messed up history. I think this will be re-emerge as soon as ffmpeg-mt has a sorted out history.

    If this was the Linux-kernel this would never have been merged in the first place, Linus has blocked DRM-pulls before, and at least once with a big lecture of the evilness of "git reset".

      It wasn't really unmerged, just the history was removed and replaced with this:

        Yeah, seems like they found a better way to fix it.
