2. New job proposal :

Anybody volunteering to port Mosu's mkvmerger to Windows ? While 
matroskadub is a great tool to create ( mux ) and edit matroska files on 
Windows, i see problems coming along us with respect to muxing all the 
different subtitle formats we are going to support, as well as new audio 
formats such as
- Speex
Support muxing of those should be much easier to do from a command line 
based tool like Mosu's mkvmerger, so its essential for us we have it 
ported to Windows.

Anybody on the job ? Henry ( until we hear from How Tam ) ? Thana ? Shelly ?

3. New Team members
