John Sullivan (johns)'s status on Friday, 14-Apr-2017 11:52:17 UTC John Sullivan Not yet. He is receiving this award because of the strong support he has given it thus far. But will he give it final approval? We'll know any day now. Make sure to give him a call if you haven't already.Jookia ☭ repeated this.
Devin Ulibarri (pikurasa)'s status on Friday, 14-Apr-2017 14:31:07 UTC Devin Ulibarri @johns Does he still have a chance to "forfeit" his award by choosing to listen to the pleas of the everyday users calling on him to put an end to EME (and thus DRM in web-standards)?
John Sullivan (johns)'s status on Friday, 14-Apr-2017 15:05:50 UTC John Sullivan Yes. In fact, we haven't actually sent it to him yet, so it would be very easy to decline...
