After some contacts with kernel bugzilla maintainer, a new category were
recently introduced, called "v4l-dvb". Previously, we are receiving bugs
as "Video" "Other".

This category allows opening bugs at the following components:
	bt8xx
	cx88
	dvb-core
	dvb-frontend
	dvb-usb
	em28xx
	pvrusb
	radio
	saa7134
	ttpci
	v4l-core
	webcam

	v4l-other
	dvb-other

We have about 200 different kernel modules, so, creating a category for
each of them would just make hard to the user. So, there are two
"generic" categories: "v4l-other" and "dvb-other" (for other v4l or dvb
troubles not covered at the rest of the categories).

If we notice a particular module is requiring more attention at the
"other" categories, we may ask adding a new component for it.

With bugzilla, it will be easier for us to have a knowledge base of
bugs, solutions and patches.

I'd kindly like to invite all driver maintainers to create an account
there, and to use it regularly.

For the users, this is a good channel to open issues about the drivers.

Have fun!

Cheers, 
Mauro.
