Now it has been more than a month since the initial submission
of the Cinepak decoder speedup patch (not counting the proof of concept
posted two months ago).

Since then, more and more of the oftentimes ignorant discussion was
dedicated to the perceived design/development policy conformance (still
did not see any reference to a corresponding document :) with no outcome.

Given the apparent lack of the interest from the FFmpeg project in making
improvements to the lightweight fast codecs (the class Cinepak belongs to)
and my lack of appreciation for the conversational style on the list
I do not feel motivated to contribute to the project any longer.

My thanks for FFmpeg and for the enormous work on making it as useful
as it is go to Michael Niedermayer, who should be also credited for his
much appreciated support and work to allow the integration into FFmpeg
and the past improvements of Cinepak encoder and decoder.
(To be clear: the friendly support does not imply endorsement)

Thanks Michael.

Now I end my involvement with FFmpeg, good luck with the project.

If a casual reader interested in Cinepak would try the patches,
I recommend the series
