@jalcine RMS's work, ethic and philosphy changed my life. If not for RMS, there is a significant chance I would be dead.
It was partly the Free Software ethics, but the work itself. He didn't just ask for a better world, he created it. For me as a teenager, that was a revolutionary idea- that I could personally change the world in that way. I didn't need permission from some company or government. I didn't need to protest, I could simply do it!
@jaywink @dansup I just hope the Free Software movement doesn't get affected negatively by this. This is something that will test the strength of the movement and prove that it doesn't depend on a single person, but that there's many people behind it willing to work for its success. The GPL/AGPL/LGPL and other copyleft licenses are something we truly need these days. Thanks for your service and efforts, RMS, but the movement needs to grow beyond you.

This should be more or less feature-equivalent with the C, libvorbis-based, decoder plugin from gst-plugins-base.
