Instead of hosting a cvs snapshot of ffmpeg, you should note the date when
upgrading from ffmpeg cvs, then use this date to write a special cvs
command, so people can fetch the correct ffmpeg cvs snapshot.

Here's to upgrade from cvs, and show the correct date 
(make sure your clock is correctly set):

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/ffmpeg \
co ffmpeg
date -u +"%F %R"

The date will look like 2003-12-03 02:40

Here's the command to retrieve that exact snapshot, even a month later:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/ffmpeg \
co -D "2003-12-03 02:40" ffmpeg
