+ <a id="message"></a><h3>August 1st, 2015, A message from the FFmpeg project</h3>
+ Dear multimedia community,
+ 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.
+ 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.
+ 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.
+ The FFmpeg project.
