The last time I mailed personal tree info to the lists I had people 
referencing my local trees for way too long, posting support messages 
for code that was getting older and more and more out of date.

It created more of a problem than it solved so I rarely do that any more.

I like to engage the non-developers on this list only when it makes sense.

Agreed, I guess.

I posted the patches to the appropriate maintainers for review, along 
with all of the dvb/v4l maintainers and Mauro. Nothing nefarious here, 
I've always done this.

The only difference is that I'm informing a number of people who've 
contacted me personally to ask for support - that support is about to 
arrive. (I did that over the weekend also with the 
HVR1200/HVR1700/TDA10048 email, and it kick-started a rather nice thread 
for people trying to bring up the TDA10048 on another product).

In summary, I have sign-off from the only other maintainer effected by 
the patches so I'd expect them to get merged very quickly into hg/v4l-dvb.

Comments / feedback welcome.
