a bunch of companies coming on the issue tracker, saying 'my boss
saw our company in the shame page and i'm here to fix it'. of course, my
examples are still marked 'open'.


imo shame should be gotten rid of until everything is updated. also
probably every single company contact needs to be updated since
roundup.ffmpeg.org no longer points to the roundup.

example of issue that needs to be closed:
and a bunch of other issues i looked at.

i'm sad at how badly a lot of those issues went. when we had the
authors come and talk to us and yet still there are problems. lots of
flaming, bad attitude (on both sides), confusion, bad communications, 
gpl trolling.

some companies deserved it, other gpl software projects did not.
