I believe this kind of attitude kills opensource project.

Not that i have a huge contribution for videolan (especially compared to
yours), but i should share my opinion on this matter.  VideoLAN already
lost two main developers because of that and we definitely dont want to
lose any other.

I object on revoking commit rights from Jean Paul.
