[theora-dev] Status?

hi --
theora is alive and well.  An early release (proof of concept), with integrated Ogg/Vorbis/VP3 encoder & decoder, is available at www.theora.org.  You can get it from CVS (project name = theora), and there is a tarball at the homepage as well.
It's been tested on Linux; for fun, I just compiled the encoder under Cygwin.

        What's the current status of VP3/Ogg integration?  The CVS doesn't seem
        to be very active - and (maybe I'm not looking hard enough) I don't see
        any ogg-specific stuff here.
        I'm one of around 30 global techs for Indymedia, one of the last things
        we need for full adoption of free media formats is a free video format.
        We're working hard to promote Vorbis, many of the local IMCs
        (Independent Media Centers, a list of which is on the left-hand side of
        the global site indymedia.org) have started promoting it either as an
        exclusivly-supported audio format or as a choice for publishers.  A bulk
        of the video available on the network is in Real format, the longer we
        go without a free alternative the more video will continue to be
        published in non-free formats (and thus a lengthier process to reencode
        from archives).
        In the effort of getting Ogg Theora available I'm willing to devote a
        portion of my time on the Theora project.  I'm a coder and because of my
        work on our audio encoding library for Freeform (one of the codebases
        for IMC sites) I'm familiar with the basics of libogg.
        Is there a roadmap? Tasklist? Or are we all just looking at this gift
        we've been given and scratching our heads trying to figure out what to
        do with it? :-) Thanks, and look forward to working with you all.
