Ivtv 0.8.0-2 was due to propagate in today. It was waiting for the
2.6.18 kernel to enter testing due to an unfortunately tight kernel
version dependency in the driver. I closed the RC bug (#397831) which
was enforcing this yesterday when I saw the kernel had gone in.

This is rather important since the 0.7.x version of IVTV in testing will
not work with the 2.6.18 kernel.
