I'm sorry, but I think I've spend a huge amount of time
collecting precise information for some of your reviews,
and proving hints with huge details on how to implement
some aspects or how things were working, sometime even
just quoting the documentation for OpenGL or building
complete scenario and examples for windowing.

While this was pretty interesting and in destination of the
mailing list more than just you, almost all of this work was
done on **my free time** (aka, sometimes 2:00 AM), because
you didn't want another competent developer to do the review
instead. So I would kindly ask you to not consider my time
to not be less important than your if you want to keep by
this logic.

And really, I don't want to force you to do anything. You
are completely free to do anything and I have no interest
nor power to change anything of that. I even appreciate
your involvement on a lot of subjects and the good
feedbacks you can provide from your expertise.

But if you don't have time or don't want to provide a
constructive feedback on public places for some subjects,
you should probably consider rework your agenda to focus on
your hobby, your health, your whatever your priority is
instead of loosing time posting incomplete or rought
reviews because you don't want to manage the time for this.
I'm practicing this a lot and it eventually improved my
whole development practice and IRL time, and I find it a
lot saner to practice demanding hobby like working on VLC.

Again, I can't and don't want to constraint you, but your
arguments would probably be easier to consider when some
care would be taken to bring them here, and I'm sure it
will save you time for a real and productive VLC activity.
