+  <p>
+    Dear multimedia community,
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    The resignation of Michael Niedermayer as leader of FFmpeg yesterday has
+    come by surprise. He has worked tirelessly on the FFmpeg project for many
+    years and we must thank him for the work that he has done. We hope that in
+    the future he will continue to contribute to the project. In the coming
+    weeks, the FFmpeg project is managed by the active contributors.
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    The last four years have not been easy for our multimedia community - both
+    contributors and users. We should now look to the future, try to find
+    solutions to these issues, and to have reconciliation between the forks,
+    which have split the community for so long.
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    Unfortunately, much of the disagreement has taken place in inappropriate
+    venues so far, which has made finding common ground and solutions
+    difficult. We aim to discuss this in our communities online over the coming
+    weeks, and in person at the <a
+    href="https://www.videolan.org/videolan/events/vdd15/">VideoLAN Developer
+    Days</a> in Paris in September: a neutral venue for the entire open source
+    multimedia community.
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    The FFmpeg project.
+  </p>
