There isn't a problem here, just a lot of noise coming from one source. I
have no problem with Mauro and think he does a good job and is an extremely
reasonable person. He is just getting Uwe's thesaurus thrown at him
because he's the closest target.

Sure there are disagreements sometimes, but this is always the case. I can
think of plenty of lists far more full of flames and personality conflicts
than linux-dvb.

The issue with dst is just a minor missing feature to fully support the dvb
helper module customization system. So nobody needs to worry about this
anymore, the last two patches in this repository will fix it correctly.;style=gitweb

Making dvb-pll work fully with this same system is a little more complex.
It's on the virtual todo list, but not at the top.

I'll finish with this completely unrelated quote.

"Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon.
We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a
liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also
mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological, Damien,
and powerful. So don't listen to him. Remember that - do not listen."
