Package: ivtv
Severity: normal


it would be better to create a seperate source package for every major
ivtv release. this way different linux kernel versions could be

currently only one kernel version (2.6.16) is supported. if we had
ivtv0.6, ivtv0.7 and soon ivtv0.8 in debian, 2.6.16, 2.6.17 (and soon
2.6.18) would be supported.

i don't know the situation of the mythtv maintainer team, but if help is
needed i can help with maintaining ivtv.
i think that ivtvdev (the ivtv X driver) should be packaged for debian
as well.
