Well the Debian linuxtv-dvb-apps isn't really a mailing list, rather an alias where bug reports from users and other interesting stuff is forwarded about the dvb-apps application. > As you'll be receiving those requests and patches, the better is for you to > forward us the patches you receive and send us upstream patches based on > the reports you're receive, keeping your package in sync with upstream, while > saving us for any internal discussions that it may be pertinent only to the > Debian ML. We aren't talking about a lot of traffic, there hasn't been any internal discussions and we have had 5 reports in the last 12 months.. http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?pkg=dvb-apps;dist=unstable I'm happy to onforward, but there can be a lag of upto a couple of months.
