No problem. I guess you have done more so far.

Sure. I had no other domain handy. Your domain name could also be used,
if you set up DNS this way (vga2scart.lowbyte.de) or we register some
free domain name vga2scart.de.vu or vga2scart.eu.org?

If you are fine with that, great. My reasoning choosing ikiwiki is, that
I would expect it to save you (and others) time.

1. Everyone can use his favorite text editor and saves time not having
to open a browser and use web forms.

2. Let us say, you implement support for another card(?), than you would
update the README right away using the console and your editor of choice
and the Wiki is updated, too. Otherwise you would have to log into
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/ find the page, hit edit, (wait for it to
load,), …

Do you care about this? It all depends on your needs and habits.

On a side note. Do you know if linuxtv.org is also for non-English
languages. In my opinion, it would not be so beneficial to have the
documentation for one language on one site and for another language on

Is linuxtv.org the place for VDR related documentation?

Do you mean by discussion mailing lists?

I never used sourceforge.net. So I can not say anything about this. They
offer SVN and CVS, do not they?

My conclusion from your reply is, that publishing your repository on
your server is not an option.

Could you please tell me, how you are managing the VGA2SCART patches
right now and if publishing your tree on a server or for example [1]
would be an option.
