Oh boy this sure is a civil and friendly project.

What makes _you_ think it's acceptable to treat people this way? Have
you even seen how long Paul has been trying to get this in? Certainly
he doesn't deserve such a reaction.

It isn't the first time you act this way either. It's hard to work with
you at all. I believe you claim that you have me in your kill file too.

Regarding Paul's "your highness" - well you seem certainly like some
sort of all knowing benevolent (academic?) leader, who has little time
and for who lesser minions like Paul should be thankful to receive any
audience at all, even if they have to wait a week.

This is a project of volunteers. If you don't want to commit to the
rules and responsibilities of the project, you can just remove yourself
from the maintainers file and stop reading/posting here. This will
probably be less stressy for you too. It's not good to be stuck between
two time demanding jobs.

Oh, now Paul should be thankful too for receiving a cranky reply after
4 days of waiting, with no time frame given for when you can grace us
with your genius. Nope, it doesn't work this way.

I think he's totally fine with that. Better than some unfriendly person
blocking a patch.

Applies to you too. He was just being slightly cheeky (in reply to a
cranky post), and then you freaked out and accused him that he'd
certainly set FFmpeg on fire if he were too impatient to wait for your
sage advice. (Wait how long? More than 4 days... a week? Weeks? Moths?)

Anyway, I think your reply means Paul is allowed to push his patch.
