Everyone reading your mail gets a clear picture of who is disrespectful.

Please re-read our code of conduct and follow it in the future.

I don't know why you are so enraged about this topic, but I assume that's
because you are frustrated about how ffserver has been allowed to continue
using private APIs for a very long time.

Believe it or not, but I share some of that frustration and thus am happy
that it has been decided to no longer let ffserver block the library cleanup.
So if it's still using those private APIs at the next major bump, it will
sadly have to go.

However, there is no valid technical reason to remove ffserver earlier or
if it gets fixed, which is why this should not be done, in particular if
other developers are still working on it.

That's the long and short of it.

I'm dismayed to see that this discussion has devolved into useless flaming.
I have no desire nor intent to take part in it and urge everyone else to
refrain from participating in that kind of behavior as well.

Best regards,
