This matches my experiences with their channel over the years. For this reason I try to avoid their channel and just email people directly when I have questions. I've now asked aboutlicensing on the fft we borrowed from them, as the original was more or less BSD. If we canget BSD licensing, I would like to see about getting it back into Tremor. Tremor is verywidely used on many portable devices, so improving it would greatly improve Vorbis support.

If you know anyone over there who is interested in working with us, maybe we could meetin our IRC channel.

Mike
