That's a pity, because this represents to me as a matter of personal  
problems between Rémi and you, which should be discussed personally or  
on videolan@, because it is something which doesn't affect people  
interested in commit mails about VLC's development. Note that this  
mailing-list is read by a huge bunch of people, companies, etc., in  
short folks who don't need to care about VideoLAN's internal

That will clarify a lot. Thanks.

Not my intention, but thanks for trying to impute this to me.

It is nice that you see this change of behaviour too, which I  
appreciate btw. However, I need to disagree, because I think that  
communication gets better, although it isn't at top-level yet. Just  
looking how this works out in the future, is more my way of living.

Note that I don't say that Rémi is innocent. I do see the points  
you're criticising. All I am complaining about is the way you do it.

Already stated my opinion on this. No need to repeat.

It is nice to see your interest in VLC media player and your continued  
contributions to vlc-devel. That's not what I expected when I read  
your "Bye" message. That's cool and I'm kind of happy about it.
However, flaming on this mailing-list in inappropriate arguments and  
more importantly language styles is not something I want to see and  
it's definitely not something I will tolerate. As you said not too  
long ago, this project is mostly about spare-time fun. Flaming people  
is not the kind of fun I am seeking by contributing to VLC media  
player. This kind of stuff damages both the success and more  
importantly the reputation of the project. This is not ffmpeg-devel  
for a reason.

Anyway, that's the end of discussion for me. I'll spend the week-end  
offline at a Rock Festival and won't respond to anything until Tuesday.
