The idea of merging the mailing lists is running around for some time.

It took some time for me to have time to address this issue, but it finally
happened. We've just created it as:
	linux-media at vger.kernel.org

The idea is to replace the v4l-dvb-maintainer mailing list by
linux-media at vger.kernel.org, being the main point for both V4L and DVB

One of the advantages is that vger anti-spam filters are very efficient, and we
can have the mailing list opened to bug reports from non-subscribers without
the risk of receiving lots of trash.

Also, almost all other kernel development mailing lists are there.

We'll probably integrate the mailing list soon with the newly-created
patchwork.kernel.org. Patchwork is a tool that allows the developers to do a
better job of handling patches without the risk of having patches lost

I'll later put an announcement after having the tool integrated with
linux-media at vger.kernel.org.

For now, I kindly want to invite you all, and specially the developers to
subscribe linux-media at vger.kernel.org.

To subscribe, just send an email to:

majordomo at vger.kernel.org

With the body containing:
subscribe linux-media
