What happened to the Video Encoding Samples project?

Due to the new GPU generations being released by the two major vendors (and soon three major vendors), I’ve currently put the project on indefinite hold. The current discoveries still hold for all existing encoders, which makes newer tests unnecessary for the time being. Even the early runs have not resulted in different settings compared to before.
