I agree with you that having more people reviewing code isn't a bad 
thing. I'm always happy and thankful when someone helps me to find and 
fix bugs/issues in my code.

Unfortunately, I spent alot of my time in the past fixing things 
completely unrelated to the functionality in order to make my patches 
pass countless FFmpeg review rounds. It was all about coding style, 
spelling, formatting etc. I simply believe that there are more important 
things I can contribute to FFmpeg than submitting pretty-printed and 
well formatted patches.

I would like to ask the question the other way round: is there any 
developer(s) interested in helping me to integrate my ATRAC3+ code into 

The reason why the Libav project is currently working on my patches is 
that Diego and Kostya offer me a helping hand (and not my personal 
failure at being neutral)...

Best regards
