QuoteFrom January 2012 FLAC is being maintained by Erik de Castro Lopo under the auspices of the Xiph.org Foundation.So it seems Josh is no longer working on FLAC, I am concerned that merging into xiph might not be best for FLACs future...(it is nothing personal against xiph), FLAC has a window of opportunity to become the defacto lossless codec, but without strong management it will not (and in 4 years everything will be in Apple lossless, or some such)I propose that a team from HA is put together and then propose to xiph that such a team take over FLACs stewardship. If you are interested put your name forward, and if the team is strong, we can propose.
I am not an experienced programmer (I am in the progress of transforming from Matlab to Python...)
I am sure there will be more people out there willing to put a few bugs into this

@greynol: I understand your concerns - I am just not sure if it will work the other way... we will see
AFAIK the future Xiph's format Ghost will support lossless. But it won't be ready any time soon.

(Strangely WavPack is also stuck for quite a while now as well).
Is there a reason to question Eric's stewardship?
