Take it easy man, I'm just stating facts and similing while I type.
And we're talking about the future development. I love anarchy and
proper forks, libav is not one of them. I don't mind being banned for
saying this though.

 Maybe we all should blame Debian instead, the grandmother of distros
has caused me many troubles as an end user. So all debian derivatives
should just avoid using debian as a primary source.
