BTW I believe one of the main objectives of the foundation should be
to raise funds for sponsoring the main contributors of FFmpeg for
working on it without the need of other incomes, and Michael was and
is by far the most fundamental contributor to the project (even after
the "restructuring").

I hope this will be possible in the future, still waiting for the
foundation thing to be set up.
