I do not need to address your beliefs, but I do need to address
outright falsehood. I normally do not address such things, but things
have gone out of hand. I am tired of this, and want it on the public
record the actual state of affairs. I did not even submit "dozens" of
patches for C standard conformance. There was a 5-patch series for
this, all available on ffmpeg-devel for those interested. Even with
the 5 patches, I was clear that I am ready to drop immediately since
