I think the list is broken.  The archives haven't received anything
since Feb.  2008... http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linuxtv-commits/

I also signed up but haven't receive emails from anything you merged a
few hours ago.

Ok, we need some list that is open to everyone and gets a majority of
the patches.  If linuxtv-commits gets fixed up that might work.

I am just concerned about the v4l-dvb-maintainers list being too private
and private trees not getting enough review before going into mainline.
linuxtv-commits may help.

Thanks,
