ok, heres a try:

I write the snow spec, but not alone. I think we should take the
opertunity to try to reunite the 2 sides. So ideal would be if some
of the hardliners from libav would participate, also i think stefano
might be interrested to also work on it.

This doesnt mean ive changed my mind on what i dislike on how the
foundation is run but i think that a small step toward reuniting the
team is a overriding goal relative to that.
