I apologize, Markus, for making that rather rude comment.  But, from a
user's perspective the split between you and the rest of the v4l/dvb
community is extrordinarily frustrating and my comment reflects that.
I think both sides are responsible for the split to varying degrees.

Your work has been invaluable to many people including myself, but I
think pulling your code down so abruptly has caused a pretty big loss
in goodwill and respect, even from some of your supporters.

I have also become a little uneasy with some aspects of this split.
It appears to my untrained eye, Markus, that you still depend quite a
bit on the dvb/v4l community to provide a working structure for your
code and for users to provide information on various hardware.  This
is not to belittle your amazing work, but it seems odd that (it
appears) you depend so much on the community you've so roundly

In all, it wouldn't be so frustrating for the users who depend on both
projects if they got along in the kernel at the same time.  Obviously,
I'm not sure this is practicable, or even possible, but that would
alleviate some of the tension.
