Yes, a little bit late. The libav removal bug is a little light on details:

The following Debian wiki gives some rationale for the switch back to
ffmpeg from libav there. It also gives an analysis of which programs

I hope everything we need in US has been patched/rebuilt to use the
right library. There was probably a transition webpage, but I haven't
searched for it.
