LXer: The FFmpeg/Libav situation
Published at LXer:

One year and a half ago, an important part of FFmpeg developers decided to change the way the project was managed. This led to some kind of takeover, mainly to get rid of the old maintainer dictatorship, but also to change development methods, redefine objectives, etc. Then, for various reasons I will quickly explain, these people made a new project called Libav.I will try first to summarize the most objectively as I can what was the situation, why it led to the current one, and basically how things are linked together. In a second time though, I will try to explain why, as a FFmpeg/Libav war child, I finally chose one side, and what it means daily.

That was actually pretty interesting. Lots of sources too.
