I'm sorry to inform you that the way you do it (and your behavior
towards James Almer) is very malicious. If you can't see this, I'm
sorry for this project.

It's not my intention to participate in this discussion, though.
ffserver removal was decided long ago, and suddenly there is extensive
resistance against it. If you care so much, go fix it. And fix it
months ago, where we all agreed to delay ffserver removal a bit to
give you time to fix it.

These oddly timed recent patches don't fix anything about ffserver's
fundamental technical issues. They just appear to stall or sabotage the
removal for a little bit, again. This will happen over and over again.
Because you (e.g. michaelni) don't respect the decision, and just come
up with something to remove the current apparent reason for removal.
Not that it will actually help.

This just turns the FFmpeg project organization into a total joke.
Especially now that we seem to have shitstorm flamewars, where
the more persistent party gets to decide whether the decision really
goes through. This is certainly not rational behavior.

Anyway, not wasting my time on this any further. I'm sure you have a
sharp response, how about sending it to /dev/null. Spend your time
fixing ffserver out-of-tree instead, and we'll accept your patches to
readd ffserver once it's done.
