this is getting nowhere. You need to solve this in a non-public
Given the amount of noise this has generated on debian-devel, I am sure
some of the Debian oldtimers[1] will be happy[2] to act as mediators for
such a discussion if it is organized in a somewhat convenient
location/conference/etc and if both sides consider such a mediation

[1] With or without previous contacts with ffmpeg/libav.
[2] Think of it like "spending some hours to fix the issue" vs "spending
some hours to read more mails on debian-devel".
