youtube-dl is back!

As everybody already knows our dev repository has been reinstated earlier today. You can read the full story here.

We would like to thank GitHub for standing up for youtube-dl and making it possible to continue development without dropping any features. We appreciate GitHub taking potential legal risks in this regard.

We would also like to thank EFF and personally Mitch Stoltz for invaluable legal help.

We also appreciate massive amount of support received lately and we are sorry we could not physically respond to everybody.

Finally, we would like to thank all youtube-dl users and contributors for using and improving youtube-dl.

Thank you all.
