Currently the Vorbis patent issue covers these threads:
Vorbis development, status & patent issues PART 1 - NON-technical discussion
Vorbis development, status & patent issues PART 2 - Technical discussion (This thread)
/Moderator comment

By looking at this:
http://www.xiph.org/archives/vorbis-dev/20...2/index.html#83
it seems that Xiph (at least in 2000) was open to the idea of disclosing the patent research.
Is this position changed now, or does it still stand?

I was the only one who was talking about that? Monty's and Haese's comments just magically appeared on the log. I see. I shouldn't have answered to Monty or Haese because other Xiph members pushed the discussion away from the topic at hand.


OK, first my main point was not the noise vs. not noise issue, but just the fact that the way you quoted was misleading. Can you at least acknowledge that?

QUOTE
I'd rather say some other people added "noise", because there was a discussion going on between me, Monty and Haese, and it started by me when everybody was still talking about the patent issue. You can clearly see that in the logs. And again, I was not asking any "statements" about what is meant with "patent free". I was asking for coder opinion, even on the general principle level about the issue covered in this thread (even forgetting Vorbis, and talking totally in general level, but I was made to shut up there by Xiph before I had a chance to say anything further).


OK, so you were "made to shut up by Xiph". Everyone knows that Xiph is a large, powerful organization with the power to silence people, right?

QUOTE
Thank you for letting me know that I only added noise, since after all, this is no important issue at all, right, and I'm just a troll who was adding noise there, when there was "much more important issues" to cover. At least I now know your position what comes to me..


I probably want this statement more than you do and probably would have liked to discuss it a bit further... *However*, I realize that going deeper into topics in this kind of *general* meeting just makes the meeting last forever (this one was already 1.5 hours long). That's why we can't stay too long on something. Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to comment once we at least have something to show.

QUOTE
This all makes me wonder why I ever wasted my time bringing up Vorbis quality issues when 1.0 was in the makings, or why I bother keeping up Vorbis forums here, or why I bother asking clarifications to an issue, which might in the end add hughly positive impact on Vorbis. Why should a troll like me do anything for you guys.


Don't cry, we love you JohnV smile.gif
