Iam happy to hear you did, but you havnt said so before and i cant read your
mind. Besides the suggestion was technically too late, also people could just
have voted for it anyway, no single person did. And no other person besides
you supported this name either so i really do not belive it would have won.
Also if you belive theres something wrong/ a farce/ ... or you think
"Open Multimedia Technologies Foundation" is better, or the name should be
finetuned, start a vote now. If you raise the issue after the registration
process started then its too late. That means you need to act before monday,
ronalds plan was to start this process monday but we can wait if an ffmpeg
developer raises an objection.

Today would be a great day to suggest names. We still haven't found
any good one and I'm planning to finish this by sometime next week,
which means I'll probably have to do a vote between the various
proposed names this weekend / early next week.
If you have a great name suggestion, please propose it here. Every
developer (a person with SVN access or regular + recent patch
contributions) may propose names, and to prevent this from becoming
one big mess, I'll ask that every proposed name is "me too'ed" by at
least one more developer.
