RPMFusion maintainers can be reached more easily on the RPMFusion
mailing lists. I happen to be the maintainer of MPlayer package, so
I'll answer here, too. I'm aware of all the issues, but I don't have
enough time to take care of them in a timely manner. If you (or anyone
else) would like to offer help co-maintaining, that'd be very welcome.
