I hope this list is small enough for not beeing banned when 
introducing oneself. So...

I just subscribed to the theora-lists. I'm from the XVID project, 
so I know a deal about video and MPEG-4 in particular, but nothing about
Vorbis/Theora etc., That's why I'm here, because I'm interested in
patent-free alternatives. 

I guess there is no documentation of the current status of Theora 
and it's basic (technical) concepts, is there? Because reading sources is
okay, but sometimes a few explanations make it much easier. 

I'm particularly interested in how you manage to keep everything free of
patents, in particular since I know that there are patents (claimed) on
such trivial stuff like motion vector prediction and decision when to
encode and when to skip a block.
