Announcement: 2012 Media Subsystem Summit
Once again, the Linux Media Subsystem looks to hold its own workshop, running along side and during the 2012 Linux Kernel Summit (KS/2012), being held, between August 26-28th, in San Diego, CA., U.S.A. Preliminary discussions about the range of topics and details for the forthcoming event can be found in a pair of threads on the mailing list (unfortunately, the discussion got fractured into two for some unimportant reason):
If you wish to see particular subject matters addressed during the summit or are interested in participating in the series talks, now is the time to figure that all out! --19:32, 21 July 2012 (CEST)
Look Out GSoC, Here Comes CSoC (Crope's Summer of Code) !
A (very) belated congratulations goes out to Antti Palosaari (aka "Crope" on IRC) for his project's acceptance into this year's GSoC. Antti will be focusing on bringing improvements to the DVB USB framework and, as well, to the DVB-core itself. More information can be found in the following links:
And, if your curiosity has really been piqued by this, but the above links prove insufficient, you can find even further details related to this work in a number of the discussions that have occurred on the Linux-media mailing list over the past eight weeks or so.
Hopefully in the future we shall see further interest and participation in the GSoC program; it really is an excellent opportunity afforded to students and there are just sooooo many areas in the realm of V4L-DVB code that could use improvement/refinement and, hence, could make for interesting summer projects. --06:47, 2 July 2012 (CEST)
