@ both mru and michaelni
I don't think 'reconcile' meant discuss any current proposal for a
compromise regarding FFmpeg.
Rather, I think it meant: agree to work together without virtually
tearing eachothers throat out. (Possibly under the conditions of a
compromise that will be decided upon sometime in the future.)

@ mostly mru
michaelni said "that is the idea for discussion", as in: it's a
proposal, not a demand or ultimatum.
