+  <p>
+    Dear multimedia community,
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    The resignation of Michael Niedermayer as leader of FFmpeg yesterday has come as a shock. He has worked tirelessly on the FFmpeg project for many years and we must thank him for the work that he has done. We hope that in the future he will be able to continue to contribute to the project. In the coming weeks, the FFmpeg project will be managed by the active contributors, until we can find a more permanent solution.
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    The last four years have not been easy on our multimedia community, for both contributors and users. The current situation gives us an opportunity to find solutions to these issues, and to have reconciliation between the forks, which have split the community for so long.  </p>
+  <p>
+    Unfortunately, much of the disagreement has taken place in inappropriate venues so far, which has made finding common ground and solutions difficult. We aim to discuss this in our communities online over the coming weeks, and in person at the <a href="https://www.videolan.org/videolan/events/vdd15/">VideoLAN Developer Days</a> in Paris in September: a neutral venue for the entire open source multimedia community.
+  <p>
+    The FFmpeg project.
+  </p>
