ffmpeg fork timeline

FFmpeg社区最近频繁发生政变与地震,为了让感兴趣的人对整个事件有一个清晰的认识,有人专门整理了整个事件的进展情况,整个事件有点搞笑,也令人深思,就如同某人说过的“管理一群牛B的程序员就等同于放养一群骄傲的猫”一样难。

 

1. ffmpeg switches to git, hosted by videolan because michael niedermayer was not happy with mplayer (mphq) roots/admins.

2. a fork of ffmpeg is started at almost the exact same time as the git switch. and tries to take over the project in the confusion.

3. original/official ffmpeg repo is removed from download page by fork team and replaced with fork repo.

from changing ffmpeg.org's website repo (hosted at mplayer).

5. Fabrice Bellard, owner of ffmpeg trademark and domain ffmpeg.org changes dns
from being hosted on mplayerhq.hu to a new server ran by Arpi (creator of mplayer). this change was made due to michael, carl and compn asking for this.

6. fork of ffmpeg changes its name to libav and moves from mphq to a new server.

官方:ffmpeg.org在3.15给出如下声明,此事件暂告一段落:

FFmpeg has been forked by some developers after their attempted takeover[1] two months ago did not fully succeed. During these two months their repository was listed here as main FFmpeg repository. We corrected this now and list the actual main repository and theirs directly below. All improvements of their fork have been merged into the main repository already.

Sadly we lost a not so minor part of our infrastructure to the forking side. We are still in the process of recovering, but web, git and issue tracker are already replaced.

Readers who want to find out more about the recent happenings are encouraged to read through the archives of the FFmpeg development mailing list[2]. There was also a bit of coverage on some news sites like here [3].
