Here is the draft text that I propose to integrate into the current page
about Cinelerra on Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinelerra)
A separate branch of Cinelerra and the result of a longstanding
programming work by W.P. Morrow (aka "goodguy"), Cinelerra-GG (CinGG)
integrated the code of "Cinelerra-HV" from the beginning and its
development went through "Cinelerra.Org" then "Cinelerra-CV" before
continuing its growth in a completely distinct and autonomous way, now
supported by its own site (https://www.cinelerra-gg.org).
Cinelerra-GG is entirely free (GNU General Public License). It is the
result of a long process of merging the code of the different branches
and versions of Cinelerra and the additions available from many
developers. It specially incorporates many original improvements (which
have been and are still very often initiated at the request of its users).
Cinelerra-GG is determined to get as close as possible to what can be
expected from a "professional" level video editing software (NLE) for
the Linux platform.
Cinelerra-GG is very attentive to the requests and suggestions of its
users, in the same way all proposals for code improvement submitted by
developers are enthusiastically received. The "mailing list"
(https://lists.cinelerra-gg.org/mailman/listinfo/cin), the "bug tracker"
(https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/bugtracker/my_view_page.php) and the
"forum" (https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/forum/) allow for discussions and
exchanges of information.
The list of additional new features that Cinelerra-GG adds to those
already present in other branches is now too long to list in this short
presentation. Instead, see the following document, which compares in a
table the characteristics and features of the different Cinelerra
Cinelerra-GG does not fall within the scope of version numbering of
other Cinelerra branches. It is rather in perpetual development (Scrum
model) and in a very dynamic way; Cinelerra-GG updates, which are
intended to be "stable" quality, are published monthly for a large
number of Linux and FreeBSD distributions. These rolling releases
contain fixes to reported bugs as well as frequent feature improvements.
