Did we ever hear back from Huawei about their uncertainty over their
rushed last-minute declaration of the patent they bought?  I thought
they'd promised to follow up on that ...


It is mildly amusing to see the people who objected to this group forming,
who claimed there was no expertise here to produce a competitive codec,
and who persist in objecting to its RF status, seem to have such amazing
trouble not only understanding this codec, but also their _own_ patents
and what they actually apply to ...

I'd certainly be embarrassed to be consistently that wrong about everything.

 'Oops' indeed.
