I have just added myself to the Uploaders field, nothing more. I think 
the package is alright, it has proven to be for a long time in multiverse.

Has someone ever tried to make the patch applied upstream? It 
shouldn't be a secret that Linux distributions prefer dynamically 
linked frontends.

BTW, how do we "release" new x264 packages. IMHO this project shares 
the same problem as ffmpeg: They do not release. This means that 
whenever we package a new SVN/GIT-snapshot, our choice of date will be 
absolutely arbitrary - or is there anything like recommended snapshots 
or reached milestones of similar?
