Ideas and suggestions concerning FFmpeg software releases.

Things that need doing

  • Fix DV regression tests on PPC
  • Approximately 95% test coverage in FATE.

Release Criteria

  • make test passes.
  • FATE test converage passes for all platforms of interest.
  • All 'important' bugs reported in roundup fixed/closed.
  • No half-implemented functionality that may break existing user apps.
  • Endurance/memleak testing on film-length files.

Rationale for releases

  • Provide endorsed snapshots for external software developers to develop against
  • Avoid sitation where external software developers using SVN head when head has transient limitations.
  • Discourage external software developers using ancient snapshots that we don't support.
