I do. I know Sam Ockman, one of the founders, I can always ask him.
Also despite Jesse leaving, we have forged a good relationship with pogo
and should and will continue to work with them.  They are good guys and
always like to help, Jesse or not.

We have already had tremendous success using flumotion from fluendo whom
Thomas Van Der Stichele works for.  It is great to use and also does
everything natively in ogg/theora which is a huge plus.

We know.  They asked us if we wanted to sign an agreement to get it from
them, part of some open domain thing.  We declined due to RH Legal's
dislike of the idea which looks like was the right thing.  For now I
suggest we continue to use fudcon.fp.o and do the same when the
foundation is up and running.  Although, at that point, we might need to
change the fudcon name.
