No one is denying the validity of the reason but the end result is the
same. No code, no feature. If you know of another way to turn ideas into
features without someone coding it, by all means, let's hear it. Otherwise,
the point being made is that the repeated rehasing of previously discussed
ideas does very little in terms of real value. Sure, it *might* spark the
interest of some new developer but these are also not "low hanging fruit"
that a new coder would be likely to tackle as their first foray into MythTV
If you've seen the level of activity going into the MythTV code right now,
you'd also see that those core developers are *actively* making significant
changes to the system leaving little time for any other feature requests at

And why are you so offended that someone has pointed out that this has been
discussed over and over and over again here?
