Ahem. "I've shouted many times under my shower that I had a crush on
Heidi Klum, and we still aren't going out together... I wonder why"

or, better:

"I've got a post-it on my car dashboard that reads that I have a crush
on Heidi Klum, and we still aren't going out together... I wonder why"

... some ways to communicate are clearly not efficient.

Docs-related discussions belong to the DOCS mailing list.

That is probably true. I, for one, haven't add anything to mencoder's
docs for a while, but on one hand, I consider that some parts of the
docs are "good enough" for now, on the other hand, the parts I want to
modify are a bit controversial.

Yes, I'm lazy, and I'm quite all right with that: I've only taken the
responsibility of:
fr manpage (up-to-date)
reviewing fr translations of xml and help.h files (I've got some files
on my pipe)
ml admin
mencoder xml docs (x264 section needs work)
mencoder section of the manpage (up-to-date)

And I don't want to take responsibility for anything else, because I
can't.... but I believe I do a quite decent job at what I've signed up
to (except xml mencoder doc which needs to be updated with respect to
latest x264 developments)

I surely don't miss the time when the docs were full of random rants
against users...
