Huh. Okay I just checked what this is about.

... Oh. Oh god. THREE years? AND getting paid 2000 EUR for this?!?!

And you even let this guy act as root?! /o\

This is inconceivable...

And it's the same guy who insisted on KiSS Tech. giving him their _full_ DVD player source code just because he wanted to verify (sic!) that it does not contain any more GPL code. This right after misappropriating the compensation money to FSF (or himself).

I used to do it for free (and effectively!) at MPlayer, before I was coup'd by Diego.
