It's a *fork* of FFmpeg that is becoming libav

At least according to
one post, there is an FFmpeg fork, and that fork is named "libav", which is not the same thing as "the group of developers who took over maintainership of the FFmpeg project some months ago". Like all forks, we'll have to see which one manages to carry on long term. I'd love to hear what's really going on here, e.g., who are the sides and why the fork creators believe there needs to be a fork. Presumably it's because of difficulty working together, since the fork's mission statement focused on "each individual's good behavior and intolerance of bad behavior, mutual respect, active and positive reviewing of submissions and other policies and processes targeted at conserving this environment."
