Hi Manu,

That's good news.

Well, I really hope you won't join Markus desperate way of breaking Linux DVB

S2API is now merged and thus is given to the whole community. And YOU are part 
of this community, so the new API is yours also. If you want to submit 
fixes/patches, you have of course the rights to do so, and if it's a good one 
(and i'm pretty sure it will) i will second it for adoption.

Best Regards, Manu.
