Mauro suggested two options, I asked for the first (the Mercurial tree) which is more convenient for me. As it used by multiple parties here and if there is no objection based on some unknown (to me) reason, I would like to use that option.

Some of the patches in the list are pending from early September, 2008.
( I think it's time they will be popped out of the queue.... :-)

Regarding restoring, modifying, enhancing, etc. - Please do it successively, submitting my patches and your after them, so (1) the congruity between the Mercurial DVB tree change-sets and Siano's change-set will be kept, and (2) I, and other reviewers, may review your patches/changes in their own change-sets.

Please see above
