That's the spirit. You know I'm in the "we need releases" camp and have 
developed FATE specifically to help towards that result.

Thanks for being plan-oriented, i.e., recognizing that preparing for a 
release will require a plan.

I've been reading the day's arguments about a release. Here are my thoughts:

* I know that the project leadership (Michael) has no objections to 
releases, as long as volunteers step up to manage a sensible process 
that won't lead to more problems.

* I know that there are people who don't care about formal releases. 
That's fine. Those people can just keep doing what they're doing with 
regards to FFmpeg hacking. It's valuable. Just *don't get in the way* of 
those of us who are working on release planning.


In short, "play your position." And releases WILL happen.
