I developed the current website's layout and colour scheme. I do not
support Michael's actions but I will not revoke usage of the website's
aesthetics as I do not think it would gain anything.

I do not really have any hope for a resolution between the two sides
and I no longer have the energy nor will to seek one. It seems people
have chosen their sides. I support libav.org and those working on the
libav.org tree and hope that efforts will continue towards the goals
we originally discussed so that any community surrounding the codebase
can work in a productive and positive environment.
