There is a statement from him in German:
For those who don't understand German a brief summary: He is currently quite
busy and therefore concentrates on one plugin only, which is the burn plugin.
He doesn't want to let streamdev out of his hands, however he would appreciate
it if someone else would become a maintainer with equal rights.

AFAIK there's no second maintainer yet. At least the modifications for VDR 1.4
and a few bugfixes have been commited in the meantime.

Those interested in vdr-to-vdr streaming might have noticed, that I started
off to provide replacements for some of the vdr-to-vdr related menu features
of streamdev. With remoteosd and epgsync two plugins are already available and
there's more to come. Sascha Volkenandt agrees that it makes sense to move
these features into dedicated plugins.

Most streamdev related discussions take place in vdr-portal.de. Although
almost all posts are in German, you can of course post in English, too.

This is correct. VTP is quite similar to SVDRP and is used for vdr-to-vdr
streaming (i.e. by the streamdev-client). The HTTP port allows streaming to
clients such as mplayer. Several different stream formats are supported.
