We have made a new point release, (0.9.1). It contains many bug and security fixes, amongth them CVE-2011-3893 and CVE-2011-3895.
(those are chrome CVE's but it seems the culprit was ffmpeg, didnt check if those were not fixed in 0.7.8 for example)
@Alexis, 0.9.1 is ready to stabilize?

iow: nothing moved, so my vote would be to cc arches and let them do the tinderbox run. i've asked diego for a tinderbox run prior to unmasking ffmpeg 0.8, didnt get it, you can see in that bug that there were no reply either for 0.9. even arch teams didnt move for rekeywording >=0.8, which bug was opened 1.5 months ago. if noone takes action, this can remain as such for a couple more months i think.
Thanks, everyone. Added to existing GLSA request.
The svq1_decode_frame function in the SVQ1 decoder (svq1dec.c) in libavcodec
in FFmpeg 0.5.x before 0.5.7, 0.6.x before 0.6.4, 0.7.x before 0.7.9, and
0.8.x before 0.8.8; and in Libav 0.5.x before 0.5.6, 0.6.x before 0.6.4, and
0.7.x before 0.7.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption) via a crafted SVQ1 stream, related to "dimensions
Heap-based buffer overflow in the get_sot function in the J2K decoder
(j2k.c) in libavcodec in FFmpeg before 0.9.1 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (application crash) via unspecified vectors
related to the curtileno variable.
Integer overflow in the ff_j2k_dwt_init function in libavcodec/j2k_dwt.c in
FFmpeg before 0.9.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(segmentation fault and application crash) via a crafted JPEG2000 image that
triggers an incorrect check for a negative value.
nothing left to do for media-video@
