Possible Formation of FFmpeg Foundation NGO

Recently posted on the FFmpeg Developers mailing list was a request for comment from Ronald Bultje regarding the intention to form an FFmpeg Foundation (although not using that name).

Full text of Ronald's post is as follows:

Hi,

some developers have stated the intent to set up a NGO (non-governmental organization) to help us bring some structure, support and funding into the project. We haven't decided on a name yet, although people agree that we dislike "FFmpeg Foundation" - if you can suggest better names, please do so in this thread. Right now, we're at a point where I think most of the stuff is decided and there is just some paperwork to be filled out. All this with many thanks to Karen at the SFLC who helped to get all this going. The NGO will be registered in Delaware, USA (for administrative reasons). Its goal will be to "advance the state of free and open multimedia" or something like that.

  • ocs-client GSoC
    So my GSoC is coming to its end. I have no cool screenshots to upload this time and I have no new great features to talk about, in fact Caludio and I manly focused on bugfixing and testing. We have spent time also discussing about possible changes and improvements to the current OCS protocol. So is the client ready do be lunched? In short I would say that no, not yet.. although most of its features are implemented and it is usable, it is still an “under construction” project, we both still have to make some important decisions to make it usable to everyone.
  • The Fiber Engine Poll, Updates, and Breeze
  • Bringing Akonadi Next up to speed
    and refactoring it again, to make sure the codebase remains as clean as possible. The result of that is that an implementation of a simple resource only takes a couple of template instantiations, apart from code that interacts with the datasource (e.g. your IMAP Server) which I obviously can’t do for the resource.
  • New linter integration plugins for KDevelop
  • Artikulate Plans for Randa
    Language learning is often considered as the task of memorizing new vocabulary and understanding the new grammar rules. Yet for most, the most challenging part is to actually get used to speak the new language. This is a problem that Artikulate approaches with a simple idea: to learn the correct pronunciation of a word or even a longer phrase, the learner listens to a native speaker recording, repeats and recordings it, and finally compares both recordings to improve herself/himself with the next try.
