yes, also they must not be replaced by the next best friends of
theirs. We need neutral, non controversal people who where NOT part of the coup
and did not sign the announcement

nah, you misunderstood, iam speaking of specific formating and
"ohh my eyes a bleeding" requirements not stability.

broken code is NOT welcome in the videolan repo.
but if someone has an issue with the existing (quite strict) whitespace
formating rules, but the code is otherwise fine, its welcome in videolan
also just because some code has mplayer ancestry does not exclude it from
consideration nor if it comes from anywhere else. For me the actual code
matters not how its formatted or where its from.
And i will pull all imrpovments mans does so its not that his tree would
have any better formated code, just less code.
