Thank you for being so open!
The very same to you!

You mean you never read mailing lists and are wondering that there are more than
35 people active? Well, I am not surprised...

Talking about M?ns?

You mean the one who swore to me last year he would never take over FFmpeg,
would not allow anyone to take over FFmpeg and who would close the account of
anybody trying to take over FFmpeg?

You mean like doing the mailing list administration that nobody looked after for
several months?

You and the 16 others (Alex afaict was the only truthful one) are lying cowards,
