I wish it were so, Moritz. But in my experience, improving the 
documentation is not always welcome.

For example: 
<http://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel/2020-April/261468.html> and 

and thread, and conflict, and actual vote to accept doc change.

And the absence of documentation improvement patches which are not part 
of new code on ffmpeg-devel for the last forever.

It's a pity, because I think that the FFmpeg documentation is 
inadequate, that the inadequacy creates obstacles for users, and as a 
result there is more support work to do on the ffmpeg-users mailing 
list. If help in improving the documentation were more welcome, then I 
think both the developers and the users of FFmpeg would have better 

I realise it is not in your individual power to fix this, Moritz. 
However, I want to be sure you are realistic about the actual situation.

Thank you for your help on this list, and for all you do for FFmpeg. 
Best regards,
