I just wanted to say that iam as surprised as everyone else about what has happened in the last few hours and that some developers overtaking official ffmpeg and closing everyone elses write access without any kind of public discussion is kinda nasty. Of course its their full right to fork if they see the need for that but thats not exactly what they did.
And that I and everyone i spoke with dont even know the reason behind this move

Skinkie (815924) writes "Today the seven year old GTK+ bug was fixed that prevent user to click on a button after it gained status disabled while the mouse was still floating over it.
