Wolfgang, you make a great job, thank you.

Not exactly. Here on this list you will always be told ways to do better ;).

Whether what you do is right or wrong depends of the people, but any
improvement is a good thing and a step in the right direction.

Did you check at Ekiga Richard Stallman talked to you about ? It is free
software, is available on both GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows, and is
compatible with at least the Theora video codec.

You reminded us of using Skype last time. If Ekiga or a similar software
can provide the same functionalities while respecting the freedom and
privacy of the users, it would be worth using it instead.

Richard Stallman is not telling you to drop political transparency, he
is asking you to find a way to reach it using free software.

We have at least 4 months to look for ways to achieve both, before
having to choose between different kind of concessions.
