We've discussed the removal of ffserver and even /announced/ it on news
section of the website. It would be really nice if for once this project
gets its shit together and stops looking like a joke from an outsider

Starting an ffserver replacement outside the ffmpeg tree was suggested
as a potential todo if people were willing to write it, but it didn't
affect the removal decision, something that should have happened today,
as scheduled, on the release that was just made, but that ultimately
didn't happen because who knows why.

Might as well write a news entry telling people to stop trusting
news entries.
