I pushed these changes in a separate branch that we can merge
indipendently from the "usual" updates because it's related to the
ffmpeg update, that is also in a separate branch.

The best way to proceed, IMHO, is:

- if maintainers have writing rights on SBo's git, push their changes
in a "user/${maintainer_name}/ffmpeg-updates" branch, so we can merge
these branches when we decide to merge all of them (also if it doesn't
have much sense to delay it for much time and at this scope I'm in
favour of getting the needed patches from David/John);

- report the changes here and someone will pick them up in one of
these branch: as we have some standards for the commit (one commit,
message formatted accordingly, etc.) maybe they won't be exactly pull
request but I think it's ok too, see
