I'm not sure, if you misunderstood me. I did not bear on Harald.
I don't know, if he is actively supporting FFmpeg or just using it. But
as I have no cause to communicate with him, I just watch, what happens
without participation.

I beard on one who is actively supporting FFmpeg, i.e. the 2nd most busy
committer to FFmpeg. I'm really interested in cooperation.

So I see me in the category of potential contributors, Phil has written
/"This holds back open source software in all its forms. It serves to
put off new users who might become useful contributors in time. It
alienates people with useful expertise who are not software engineers.
The problems caused by all of this are highly visible in open source
software in general, and ffmpeg in particular.//
//I don't know what the solution is, but it must necessarily involve
everyone being nicer to each other, and not trying to jusify
unprofessional, discourteous behaviour.//
//I've been saying it for years and I'm going to keep saying it: FOSS
could do so much better than it does, almost solely because of exactly
this sort of bad behaviour."/

If anyone has an idea, how to deal with that, please write.
