In most cases, its probably not just loosing interest, but running out 
of time. Handling a job, a family and a time-consuming hobby all at once 
is nearly impossible...

For short term patches, if a new VDR version breaks something, forums 
are a good source for patches. For more long term patches, the wikis are 
a good place to look, and they're easy to maintain by everyone. So if 
you find some useful patch, don't hesitate to add a link to the wiki.


Cheers,

Udo
