A new category has been added to Kernel Bugzilla, in an effort to expedite the handling of v4l-dvb problem tickets.
After contacting the kernel bugzilla maintainer, a new category entitled "v4l-dvb" was introduced. Prior to this change, bugs were classified as "Video - Other".
This new category allows users to open bug reports in the following components:
We have approximately 200 individual modules in the v4l and dvb kernel subsystems. To create a separate category for each module would only introduce further complications to the user base.
In order to report trouble with a module not covered by one of the above categories, the problem ticket should be filed under one of the generic categories: "v4l-other" or "dvb-other"
If there is a particular module that requires more attention, we can request that a new bugzilla component be added for it.
Using bugzilla will help us to maintain a knowledge base of bugs, solutions and patches.
I kindly invite all driver maintainers to create an account there, and use it regularly.
