The instructions are at 
<http://ffmpeg.org/developer.html#Submitting-patches-1>, sections 6 
"Submitting patches" and 8 "Patch submission checklist". I found those 
instructions a bit of a jumble and hard to follow, so I just reread them 
all every step of the way. As far as I can tell they don't actually 
answer your question. But it is a common practice to use "git patch 
--in-reply-to=<message id>" to set the "In-reply-to" header to the 
message-ID of your original patch email.

You still need to have a review from someone with commit authority, 
which is not me. Good luck!
