I am. What do we need to do next?
Wait. The deadline is mid-March. After that the docs will have to go to the lawyer and only then we can use them...

From what I've been told, the Japanese codecs are the most stable. I'm really not qualified to judge though.
Me neither, but Tamito has put a lot of work into them and with his move to C for the codec engine, speed is not an issue anymore either.
Also, I've asked him about his thoughts about having them included in the core before. He would be happy with that move.
