Hello

wouldn't it be helpful if applied patches are logged 
when VDR starts?

So no patch could be forgotten to be mentioned in a bug report!

I think that was a nice idea.


can't patches modify/add a string to a "Versionstring table" too, 
which VDR logs in syslog and (maybe) displays in the command window?
