Hi guys,
I'd like to ask you for a little help, small introduction into how it works
in VDR development.

My goal: I'd like to have latest VDR on my RaspberyPi, I have there
Archlinux ARM installed, so it will be maybe a little bit more complicated,
than just upgrading already existing 1.x debian package, which you can use
on Raspbian.

You know, previously I had Raspbian on the RasPi and installing and
configuring VDR was really simple.
There was webinterface and streaming to my workstation with VLC as a client
was working out-of-box (I have right now only DVB-T USB dongle).
As far as I know there is only 1.x deb package now.

I'd like to create similar package for Archlinux (PKGBUILD).

I'll definitelly use already existing debian package as a starting point
for my work.
There are also already some projects existing on that matter:
(I'm quite confused why there is already existing AUR PKGBUILD and also
another project for the same purpose, Wiki is saying that the other project
should be used instead of AUR package, really don't know why

Now I need to get idea about the VDR project in general.
For example, I was not able to find some code repository with your
code...are you using git, hg or svn? Is the repository publicly accessible?

Maybe this? http://projects.vdr-developer.org/git/

I have found also this: http://linuxtv.org/repo/ But VDR is not there,
although there is a lot of links and information about VDR.

What is the main place for "dev" informations? Is it this wiki?

Btw, what about to put such information on your homepage (
http://www.tvdr.de/) ?
Maybe even consider Github as a VDR development home, that would be awesome
:) But that's completely your things how to keep you project running.

Thank you guys for any information for my thing!

S pozdravem / Best regards
