I hope this thread is still accepting replies.

I have written a text, below is part of it, and before posting it,

I wish to inform those among people from Debian who I am thankful to,
and they
are Steve Langasek and Ian Jackson, as well as to this FFmpeg mailing
whose developers I am thankful for the FFmpeg program, and also to
Marillat whose deb-multimedia,org repo I use for FFmpeg and other

The text will contain a very specific mention of FFmpeg in Debian's
GNU/Linux so it is relevant for all the recipients. I am planning to
post it

Debian Development

right after successful sending of this mail.

Here is part of the text, beginning lines first, and ending lines. Pls.
the Debian Development of the Debian Forums to read, hopefully, the
text, whose title will be:

Defeat and Hope for GNU/Linux

====== beginning ============
I've read some (only some) of the discussions of the thread:

for the

E.g., one message that I liked is this one:

and I wish to thank the members of the Debian Technical Committee:

Steve Langasek


Ian Jackson

whose views and standpoints I admire and would follow wrt to the issue.

I wish to thank them for trying to bring reason into Debian.
