That's probably part of the issue. Is there actually a precise list of
tasks that are needed to achieve the transition to VideoLAN's
infrastructure (Docker, etc.). From what I understood, the transition
is not impossible, "just" that nobody has time/desire/skills to
migrate everything in one-shot. The bug tracking system was also an
issue since videolan's trac instance was to be decommissioned.

Maybe if there was a well defined list of things to would make it
clearer to estimate the transition cost? And, in the worst case, it's
not as if VideoLabs was hosted in a famous hoster in France, and
probably some help could be gathered from there independently as a
service? :)
