I think I have to clear up some misconceptions here. At the beginning of
this year I stopped packaging for demudi directly, and put all my
packaging effort into making packages for Debian proper.
I did not say that I am launching a Debian multimedia subproject, I just
said I would support whoever wants to do so. (Obviously nobody did yet)
So please stop referring to me as the driving force behind Debian
multimedia, because I just do not have the time nor the motivation,
knowledge or talent for doing that.
I am happy that the debian-multimedia list is what it is. A list for
discussing multimedia applications and its special needs for Debian. If
Demudi can profit from the work we are doing there, then it is good and
what I hoped that it would be.
