[CELT-dev] Just a question on how things are going

Hi Jean-Marc,

I was just wondering if maybe you would consider a "blog-like" text file 
in the codebase where you just jot down your thoughts about why you are 
making a change, and where you think you are headed. For example, I 
noticed today that you completely removed the pitch prediction code. It 
would be nice to know if you did that because you're moving away from 
using it as a speech codec, or you just found that the pitch predictor 
just wasn't making any difference. I realize that such a "blog" might 
elicit endless debate from the peanut gallery on every change you make, 
so I'll understand if you think it's a bad idea.

Also I was hoping you might give us a sense of how close you think you 
are to a 1.0 candidate. I don't want to put you on the spot, but for 
those of us that might be deploying a product with CELT soon, if we 
thought you were just cleaning up we might be willing to wait a little 
while so we could deploy with the frozen bitstream. If, on the other 
hand, you still have a bunch of ideas to try out, we'll work with what 
you have (kindly) given us so far. (I guess one clue is that you're 
quickly running out of 0.x version numbers :-)

Thanks for your consideration (and especially for the codec).

John Ridges
