[CinCV] Announcement from Michael Collins (the new registrant of cinelerra.org)

My history and my interest were always made transparent and clear. If it
wasn't clear from the opening messages I placed on the website and
directed to Herman personally, hopefully for responsible dissemination to
the "back-channel" (Herman's words) , then you weren't paying  attention

Seriously, if someone has a problem getting support and payment for
important contributions to the future of Cinelerra, don't present your
ideas nor apply yourself to its future development.

If you would like to know how you can receive support, prepare a plan and
please contact us in April.  Seriously.

Montgomery does admit one thing, which is telling. The website was dead
under his and the communal leadership  model (no surprise) and was about
to become irretrievable since he and the rest of the "back-channel" team
did nothing to save it on their own.  So, he is right, what difference
does his interest  make anyways? I don't care what he does.

So, to anyone who has their feelings hurt about the changes or my
directness, try to ignore me or please respond to what was and is a
sincere professional outreach to other professionals.  It is about
improving oneself in this noble and important pursuit of improving
Cinelerra. Again, I thank everyone for their past and future efforts. But,
it is time for Cinelerra to grow up and reach its potential.   I think we
can agree on that point.

Thank you,

Michael Collins
