the merge request has been pushed out for for Manu's code.

I'm also dealing alot with DVB and related issues (eg. the i2c messup,
as for the cx88 based
devices pcmcia iomem reservation back then .. and many other issues
which went through other

That there's no progress at the other sides is not true:

permanent development for the last couple of months.
All you could do there is to take out the usbids copy it to
linuxtv.org and play against all the people
who contributed to the other tree and which is manufacturer supported.

I'd really better think twice if you want to keep up reverse
engineered drivers with linux which are capable
of melting devices (this happens with wrong configurations).

Why am I interested in DVB? Because we have devices supporting
multiple standards which are yet
not directly supported by the DVB framework.

The lies that I forked off the driver which I initially submitted to
linuxtv is ridiculous as you modified the wiki
site on linuxtv.org. See all that you and Mauro basically have done is
copying the code from mcentral.de
and trying to build up a second front against the manufacturer supported work.

I'm seriously for a new Maintainer election here, let's see what will
come up during the next few days.
