Actually i did, this is a quote from the mail in ffmpeg-soc/12 Nov 2007

The idea is to start of with a new file (ie, no svn cp'ing)
and move the necessary AAC-LC stuff there and get it into
shape for merging into ffmpeg's trunk.

The history of the current file is rather irrelevant
and will be around for the interested in the soc-repo.

If you disagree, speak now or be forever silent.

Either way, this is forgotten (at least for my part) and I do indeed
plan on continuing on the AAC decoder. I have however got a lot
to do at $dayjob recently so the time I've been able to commit
to ffmpeg related work recently have been slightly diminished.

.. and those I've fixed. It took a great deal of time to spot the
errors in the filterbank since I'm no guru when it comes to that
kind of stuff. But at least I've learned more about it :-)

No, it will take more than that.

Having said that, I would definitely have appreciated a nicer
reply to the commit.

Now, EOD for me.
