The chat session was held yesterday.

In short it turned out that FFmpeg was not accepted mainly because of
the somehow tense relationships with other involved organizations,
which may result in a negative environment for the mentored
students. (Please refrain from commenting on this, feel free to ask
in private if you deem it necessary.)

On the bright side we got a quite positive review of our ideas page,
so that's definitively something we can use as a starting point for
future applications.

I wish again to thank all the volunteering contributors and mentors
for their effort.
