So you do not volunteer to do the work and you explain me how it will
be no additional work for me? (why dont you volunteer if its no work?)
you seem to assume we dont fix any security issues, fix no bugs,
review no patches and hope it will still build with our build system
in the future.

In reality, libavresample doest even pass its selftests in ffmpeg
thats today, no future hypothethical stuff
who will fix that ?

I do maintain swresample, if it doesnt work i will fix it, if
avresample is better in some way i will improve swresample.

If the hostilities stop and libav wants to cooperate iam not opposed
to see the libs merge. If anyone wants to maintain code, all
the better, doesnt matter from which if any project he is

calm down please
avresample being built by default makes your life easier in the short
and it would help some others, it wont help every user

also if for example ubitux prediction is correct and it kills
swr then you end up with a codebase which maybe noone from ffmpeg
will maintain. That doesnt sound like a particularly good long term
outcome for ffmpeg users.

I suggest we skip the political trolling and try to solve the problems
