I am now playing around with the available code for quite some time now
with mixed success, but no solution comes near the term “stable”.

• kernel: nothing in there. Well, reasonable.
• v4l-dvb: nothing in there.
• s2-liplianin: mantis available, but obviously not under
development/bugfixing. IR seems to work, CI handling looks quite broken,
hangups/lockups are the rule, additional problems with more than one of
these cards in the system.
• mantis-v4l: does not compile out of the box for recent kernels. When
hand-knitting the files into a kernel source directory (2.6.31), works
quite unstable, module reloading frequently segfaults. IR does not work
(at least for VDR), CI handling looks better than s2-liplianin.

Conclusion: Stability is way below a level for reasonable usage while
bug fixing.

[1] gives an overview of the current state of (non-)development. Does
this still apply?

My questions are:

• Is there someone feeling responsible for that baby?
• What is the main part of the mantis stuff not working – mantis itself,
the frontend, or adaptions from multiproto to s2api?
• What can someone owning some of these cards (one Terratec, two
Technisat) do to help the (former) authors to continue their work?
• Is there some documentation available which would enable ‘the
community’ to work on that further?
