The linuxtv developers that were at LPC represent about 60% of the
number of patches for the core and device drivers that were committed
over the last year to the development tree. Are you really sure about
your above comment?

You mean a forked and GPL code from linuxtv tree?

"VDR", if you are *really* interested in v4l/dvb stuffs why I don't see
you in plumbers conference to understand your point of view and
discuss which API is better?

So, could you give a break to all developers that are working
hard and stop your dirty game?
