Please consider that some people read emails sporadically (for example, 
I did not read emails for few days, and I see the large "vote" and 
"goodbye" threads only now... I still have to finish to read them). So, 
I think you should have waited a little bit more before arriving to the 
conclusion that noone speaks in your defence.

Anyway, I repeat what I wrote in response to Michael: I think you two 
should try to relax a little bit, and to take things less personally. 
IMHO, disagreements about development issues, or commit rules, should 
never become personal attacks...
I believe that both you and Michael are incredibly skilled developers, 
and your contributions to ffmpeg are invaluable. And maybe I am a 
dreamer, but I believe that if both of you try to look at things from 
the other one's perspective you can peacefully cooperate on ffmpeg. And 
even have fun.

So, please, reconsider your "goodbye" decision...
