I'd noticed - looks fun and useful :-); thank you!
I'm really just canvassing support at the moment; if there are others
interested, we'll want to organise ourselves in terms of mailing lists
and working out which repositories to commit to - I am guessing neither
Theora nor WebM want us to dump non-working code into their repos per
se, but they might be willing to accomodate branches.
If there are a reasonable number of open source developers who want
to do this, I'll have a go at persuading the semi vendors that this
is something they want to get involved in - I imagine nVidia might
be interested for a start.
If there aren't, I guess we go it alone and hopefully dump an initial
release on everyone when we have something that builds; people can
then decide where it should live and whether to work on it or not ..
