yeah, the technical details for mencoder was quite silly, but ftp-master
insisted on finding a general solution for the whole mess. it seems this
has been found now, at least that's how I understand it.
I don't want to squeeze you for information you probably don't know
yourself, BUT: Would you say there are chances that as a general
solution encoders will be generally allowed in Debian in the short term?
Stefano explicitly asked me to not follow up on #522373, I guess they
will want to answer it themselves. However, I personally don't expect a
quick response there.
I hope ftp-master let their actions speak and ACCEPT these packages
ASAP. A message to d-announce would be nice, though, since this would
be a really revolutionary change in Debian's package policy.
