+ <a id="message"></a><h3>August 1st, 2015, A message from the FFmpeg project</h3>
+ Dear multimedia community,
+ As some of you may already know, <a
+ Niedermayer recently resigned as the leader of the project</a>. He has been
+ doing an outstanding work for many years, and the project is now facing
+ another crisis in its history. Nevertheless, the community will continue
+ to contribute to the project and will try to satisfy as much as possible
+ the expectations of everyone.
+ To illustrate this, we are in the process of a reconciliation with the
+ Libav project. This is a tedious and sensitive operation, that will be
+ notably discussed in our communities online over the coming weeks, and in
+ person at the <a
+ href="https://www.videolan.org/videolan/events/vdd15/">VideoLAN Developer
+ Days</a> in Paris in September: a neutral venue for the entire open source
+ multimedia community.
+ We don't really know yet if this is going to result in anything, but in the
+ meantime we urge our common users to avoid making any loud statements and
+ assumption regarding both sides.
+ The last four years have not been easy on our multimedia community, for
+ both contributors and users. The current situation gives us an opportunity
+ to find solutions to these issues, and to have reconciliation between the
+ forks, which have split the community for so long.
+ Unfortunately, much of the disagreement has taken place in inappropriate
+ venues so far, which has made finding common ground and solutions
+ difficult. We aim to discuss this.
