Well, I am not keen on doing this, but to get some progress I at least did 
upload my git tree based on vdr-1.6.0-2 version of 
git://vdr.gekrumbel.de/vdr.git to github:

http://github.com/zzam/vdr/tree/stable
git://github.com/zzam/vdr.git
Branch "stable"

It contains up to now only my three patches I already posted in this thread.

Regards
Matthias
