That was september 2003. I dont know where to find an ffmpeg list archive.
The licensing question came up, Rich went on and on about ffmpeg being free
to do whatever they please since the wording was unclear and how "someone
without a basic grasp on logic should not be coding". I told him that
he was being an asshole about this and the wording was Fabrice's.
