2006-11-24   Kernel bugzilla is ready for use by the v4l-dvb community

A new category has been added to Kernel Bugzilla, in an effort to expedite the handling of v4l-dvb problem tickets.

After contacting the kernel bugzilla maintainer, a new category entitled "v4l-dvb" was introduced. Prior to this change, bugs were classified as "Video - Other".

This new category allows users to open bug reports in the following components:

    bt8xx
    cx88
    dvb-core
    dvb-frontend
    dvb-usb
    em28xx
    pvrusb
    radio
    saa7134
    ttpci
    v4l-core
    webcam
    v4l-other
    dvb-other

We have approximately 200 individual modules in the v4l and dvb kernel subsystems. To create a separate category for each module would only introduce further complications to the user base.

In order to report trouble with a module not covered by one of the above categories, the problem ticket should be filed under one of the generic categories: "v4l-other" or "dvb-other"

If there is a particular module that requires more attention, we can request that a new bugzilla component be added for it.

Using bugzilla will help us to maintain a knowledge base of bugs, solutions and patches.

I kindly invite all driver maintainers to create an account there, and use it regularly.

Have fun!

Cheers,
Mauro.
