    77   [http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=plumi+flower&m=text Plumi] is also another name for the [http://flickr.com/photos/36518452@N00/195454616/ beautiful flower] commonly known as the [http://images.google.com.au/images?q=Frangipani&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=com.ubuntu:en-US:official&hs=6Ac&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=images&ct=title Frangipani], or less commonly, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plumeria Plumeria].

    13   One of our developers correctly pointed out that some of the software that goes into Plumi is licensed under the [http://www.zope.org/Resources/ZPL Zope Public License], other parts of the software is licensed under the [http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html GPL]. Hence we thought it best to refer to Plumi as Free Software (or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FOSS FOSS]). It should be noted that we may look at the [http://www.affero.org/oagpl.html Affero] [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affero_GPL Public License] for use with future releases of Plumi.

    1811  Plumi does support Ogg. Currently the FOSS implementation of Transcode Star (Flowplayer/ffmpeg) that we are using supports transcoding to Flash and ogg/Theora. We are currently working on implementing HTML5, to use the more open Ogg & WebM formats.
