The base development tree is v4l-dvb. It is up to the driver authors to submit
me pull requests for their work, in order to have their drivers merged.

They do it when they feel comfortable that the driver is ready for submission.

With the creation of drivers/staging, a few weeks ago, even drivers that are
not yet mature enough for their usage can be added. So, all that is currently
needed is the driver author interests for having their work merged.

PS.: please post at linux-media at vger.kernel.org. The linux-dvb ML is obsolete and will
be discontinued soon.
