[vlc-devel] Stable branch support

Due to a variety of factors, I have lacked time and motivation to 
properly contribute to the VLC 2.2 stable branch for some time. This is 
unfortunate, but I do not really have any solution, so I would rather 
make it explicit. To be clear, I have not been backporting my own fixes 
nor the fixes signed off by me consistently for a number of months. As 
far as I can tell, nobody else has done it on my behalf either. I have 
no realistic plans to go through the backlog ever, nor to resume 
backporting in future stable branches.

I might still continue to backport a few patches occasionally though 
but this is not something that anybody should rely on.

If you depend on VLC, you probably do not read this mailing list. 
Regardless, I should not need to point out that you should ensure you 
have an adequate level of support, whatever that level is to you. While 
I cannot provide specific references, I suppose some third party provide 
such services on commercial basis.

N.B.: This is just my personal opinion. I do not represent the VideoLAN
