I would suggest 2 changes to the page
1. The link ", an archive of recent CVS snapshots are also available" to
http://mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/cvs/ is dead.
2. "Formal release" implies they are the formal distribution, having
official support. This should be changed to reflect better the real
policy, something like "use cvs or stfu".
