[FFmpeg-user] FFmpeg Hall of Shame

According to LGPL / GPL it's necessary to provide the complete source codes
which includes the objects that linked against and scripts that controls
the compilation & installation. But, the websites linked in official
download pages are not providing the complete sources. Only just leaving
the link for the official ffmpeg sources. I have mailed to some of them. I
have got the reply from one of them (evermeet.cx) that It's not necessary
to provide the build scripts & claimed it's made from his own hard works
and asked ffmpeg devs to contact him. It's quite unfortunate to see this
response from the maintainer of a officially recommended download
location.​ People are utilizing the hard work behind ffmpeg & refuses to
comply with LGPL. It's shame. And ffmpeg team recommends such download

Any comments from ffmpeg dev team?​
