I would like to announce the comming of godot.

Seriously, the mailing lists will of course be transfered with all subscribers
to ffmpeg.org. People dont need to do anything.

libav.org is a fork of ffmpeg its not a rename, stop pretending otherwise.
This is just a scam, and one thats even beyond my blackest humor.

Also i guess tomorrow debian will be renamed to gentoo. and the debian lists
closed. And debian will loose all its server infrastructure to gentoo

why word around it, just say you will censor&moderate unwanted people.
Shorter and Truther

Anyway, the lists on ffmpeg.org follow a simpler rule.
* Free speech
* please respect each other and be polite
* noone will be banned or moderated
