honestly with the fearmongering? are you saying the russian ffmpeg
developers can just commit whatever they want whenever they want?! also
there are some chinese ffmpeg developers! even the president says china
cant be trusted! the russians hacked the election and now they will put
backdoors in ffmpeg!?!?!

(this email is satire btw... i do not believe russia affected the us
election, nor brexit. and china is cool with me.)

if kierank and wm4 want on the -security list, please put them on the
security list. i doubt anyone will vote against their inclusion on the
list. count this as my vote for any current regular developers (e.g.
the ones on irc or the non-irc devs if they have more than 1 year
committing) to be subscribed if they want.

thanks for reading.
