I discuss project management. This is a late attempt at overriding a decision
from parties that didn't participate in the real decision making discussions.

This crap wouldn't fly anywhere else, but somehow, and according to you, it's
rational on ffmpeg.

That nobody will take the project seriously anymore. That nobody will believe
in any announcement anymore. That anyone will be 100% sure that with a little
lobbying and trolling they will be able to get away with absolutely anything,
including overriding old decisions.

How it isn't?

Malicious was the attempt at turning efforts of making the program capable
of living on its own into an argument against the reason why it must go.

You're aware that we could have told Reynaldo that no, we don't want to give
him time to make it work standalone, and this patch would have been pushed
a week or two ago, long before you even realized this all was even happening?

That the decision was made, and there's no going back. And much less after
the malicious attempts i already described and pointed you to, that you
seemingly intend to ignore.
