What happened so far with this patches is quite funny,
for me some black hole seems to be involved.

Klaas did send them the first time, also directly to me, on Tue, 24 Mar
2009 23:14:11 +0100.

Now I can see you have pulled them in already on Wednesday.
http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/rev/5efa9fbc8a88

There is no trace anymore on patchwork visible to me.
http://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-media/list
So I don't know how you processed them.

Most confusing is, that Klaas obviously did not receive a mail
notification from linuxtv-commits that his patch came in.

Is it broken or only the archive not up to date?

Why else he would have posted a second time on
Wed, 25 Mar 2009 21:53:02 +0100 not knowing anything about the status of
his patches, which made me believe I should try to help him?

The timestamp on your mercurial commit of them is
Wed Mar 25 20:53:02 2009 +0000 (2 days ago)
That is the time when his second email arrived converted to Greenwich
time? Or how could you commit within the same second that mail arrived?

This is the time the patches have on both of his original mails.
--- a/linux/drivers/media/common/tuners/tda827x.c Tue Mar 24 21:12:47 2009 +0000
--- a/linux/drivers/media/common/tuners/tda827x.c Tue Mar 24 21:12:47 2009 +0000

How can I ever know when they were really added and if they went through
patchwork :)

I was just about to suggest Klaas should try again with [PATCH] in the
subject until they are listed at patchwork.

Cheers,
Hermann
