Dear Reinhard,

> I did a first shot at updating the ffmpeg source to version
> 20080206. The result can be seen at
> svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-multimedia/experimental/ffmpeg.20080206/debian

thank you very much for this!

However, why did you package the snapshot of 20080206? According to 
the changelog on <http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/> some interesting 
features have been added only one day later.

> I merily refreshed the quilt patches to the new upstream and introduced
> a new binary package libavdevice. The resulting source package at least
> doesn't FTBFS on my laptop, so please don't use that for anything
> serious. I have published the corresponding tarbal at
> http://people.debian.org/~siretart/tarballs/ for your convenience.
> a buildlog is attached.

Please provide a way to reliably reproduce the tarball, preferably via 
a get-orig-source rule in debian/rules!
