It would be nice if it were moved to vdr-developers. I don't think the
author would even have a problem with that. The real drawback for NA
is that while there are plenty of users, there's practically no coders
here. The ones I know have either left VDR, or dvb altogether.
Thankfully there has been some EU coders willing to throw us a bone
and help out occasionally. With their help, and Klaus, NA VDR is far
less painful today that in the past. :)
