[Gnash-dev] swfdec / gnash hacking competition

Benjamin Otte, the guy who picked up swfdec and has been hacking it
since September, says he's got youtube working with it now:

Here's why he didn't choose to hack on gnash instead: "Gnash is low
quality, written in C++ with Boost, requires Copyright assignment, svn
doesn't even compile and it does less than my current Swfdec, so I
didn't hack on it."  Hmm, swfdec is LGPL, but he doesn't want to
assign his copyright to FSF?  Not sure what his concern is.


PS:  Of course, if everyone was working on the same code, it would
evolve faster; but having some competition is a good thing too.
