What version of ffmpeg does xbmc include? I think a lot of trouble can
be avoided if a version is integrated that is shared by debian and other
ffmpeg downstreams. Since version 0.5 was released recently, that would
be a good candidate.
In fact, Debian tracks the 0.5 release branch of ffmpeg, and will
probably keep tracking it for quite some time.

how often/frequently does xbmc release? is there a roadmap?
http://xbmc.org gives me a 500 - Internal Server Error ATM.
