Yes, thank you.  We realized that a few days ago, and I've already made
the appropriate change in the megasky tree:


This tree holds the two drivers-in-progress, m920x and gl861 ... If we
decide to change the names later on, it's no big deal -- I will end up
folding some of those patches before merging to the master branch, anyhow.

I have not looked at bttv-gallery in a long while, but I've been told
that the gl861 PCB photo is already on your site.  If anybody has a
m920x-based device, please take a digital photo and send it over to Gunther.

On another note, Gunther, I have to second Markus' comment:

If you could break that huge page up into several smaller pages, perhaps
with a table-of-contents page, then I'll be able to look at bttv-gallery
once again.  Maybe you could make a single page per vendor, or something
like that?

As it is right now, firefox crashes on it, or I run out of memory -->
system hang.

I appreciate having that web site around for reference -- it just kills
any browser that I try to use to view it.  :-(
