Thank you for the review, Carl Eugen.

Two questions for you.

1. Do you expect all contributors to ffmpeg to subscribe to the 
ffmpeg-cvslog email list /in addition to/ the ffmpeg-devel list? Even 
those who only want to contribute a bug fix or two, participate in 
review discussion, then leave?

2. Instead of /removing/ that paragraph, are you also against replacing 
it with the same paragraph but centred on the ffmpeg-devel list?  The 
patch has the following alternative:

+ at section Documentation/Other
+ at subheading Subscribe to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list.
+It is important to be subscribed to the
+ at uref{https://lists.ffmpeg.org/mailman/listinfo/ffmpeg-devel, ffmpeg-devel}
+mailing list, because any patch you contribute must be sent there
+and reviewed by the other developers. They may have comments about your
+contribution. We expect you see those comments, and to improve your 
+if requested.
+Also, this list is where bugs and possible improvements or
+general questions regarding commits are discussed. That may be helpful
+information as you write your contribution. Finally, by being a list
+subscriber your contribution will be posted immediately to the list,
+without the moderation hold which messages from non-subscribers
