Which does not mean, that Klaus is not doing some hefty editing on the
stuff before including it ;-)
Anyway, even with a "distributed development" there has to be somebody
coordinating the releases and generaly ensuring the overall quality.
Klaus is doing a very good job on that!
The one thing i would wish for, is a central CVS, where each major
subproject (MP3, DVD) could have his own branch. This would make it much
simple to synchronize the seperate development versions. Currently, it
is close to a nightmare for the non-development user to have vdr running
with all the different patches applied.
Just my 10cent ...
