 Thanks for clarifying this. Doesn't this justify a one-line NEWS item?
 I can understand not wanting to mention it while still experimental, but 
 now...

I was actually waiting for someone to manifest as being the maintainer of it,
before doing that announcement, but it is probably fine to add it.

I can add it later, but I'm a little busy this week. So, if someone could 
prepare
me the news text (in HTML, if possible), this would help a lot.

Cheers,
Mauro

 Last night (well, actually the wee wee hours of this morning), I took 
 the time to:
 - add a news announcement regarding media_build on the front page of the 
 wiki
 - update the  
 http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_Obtain,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers
  
 article accordingly

Thank you!

 I suspect that what has precluded any earlier case of a widely visible 
 announcement being made, beyond those tidbits that have appeared on the 
 mailing list, is a combination of:
 - the necessity for having someone actually find and take time to 
 perform such an administrative task
 - and, amongst most, a case of general unfamiliarity  with the new system
 - and, a question of maintainership of the new system and whether or not 
 its status is still classified as experimental or has reached maturity

True.

 - and, access rights required to modify the Linuxtv proper website in 
 regards to these developments

That's probably not the reason. The first reason is by far the most important
one...

 Speaking of time, I've now expended all of mine, and then some (as per 
 usual), which I can devote to this matter.  Hopefully someone can take a 
 look and correct any mistakes I've made or add any points I've 
 overlooked on the wiki.   As well, hopefully someone else can take care 
 of the other parts of the website that need to be updated.

I hope so too. You don't have to be a developer in order to do wiki work, but
it is very much appreciated. So anyone who wants to contribute that way is
very welcome!

BTW, I hope to be able to discover for which kernels the media_build actually
works sometime this week. I'll update the wiki once I know.

Adding it to the daily build will probably have to wait until after 2.6.38-rc1
is released.

Regards,

Hans
