Yeah, I'm somewhat new to mythtv (3 months), and I tried to join the
dev list to submit a bug fix patch and never got a confirmation email.
I guess they have all the developers they want, and don't want any
"newbs" submitting bug fixes. Oh well. Maybe I'll try again...
I understand the not wanting to play 20 questions, but it would be
nice to see a list of "what is planned" for myth, after all, there
might be someone able to help code a particularly new feature, or
already working on it as a hack of their own, as to yet be shared. I
see new addons and stuff for myth just appear on this list with no
warning, sometimes, I go, 'gee, I'm glad I wasn't working on that!'
