I can see things here that aren't meant as disrespectful, but to someone who has put hours of free time into their hobby only to recieve criticsm like this (granted, amongst a lot of heart-felt praise) it is going to come across as arrogant and downright insulting.

My opinion shouldn't be taken as worth much because I know so little about the matter. I however feel it is unfair to say the LAME devs aren't working hard enough, or 'could do better'. If their commitment doesn't satifsfy you, get involved yourself (for the first time, or again in Dibrom's case) These people are coding for your pleasure, not for their own.

If the developers do not want the responsibility that a project like LAME requires, then they should do something to remedy the situation.

I understand your point here, but maybe this is why we are seeing devs quit, or have become dispassionate with the idea of a unified testing method - they want to enjoy a bit of coding in their personal time, not have the weight of a million users on their shoulders.

Raising an opinion I have voiced before, I would love to see the devs move off to new projects. This has given me another reason why. FAAC is a fledgling encoder in need of the kind of work they can give. It doesn't come with the expectation of the world - and with it, the disappointment and dissatisfaction from users who think they're not getting enough.

Vorbis is another promising project crying out for help, 1 man split between 100 different projects, and so nothing ends up getting done in good time. I see helping MP3 as a waste of good talent, the format is 99% squeezed dry by the LAME codec, whereas AAC/OGG are what, 50% of their potential.

I just wish some of the coders felt the same, we could have progress in new technologies that will really forward the world of audio compression.
