If you want to keep up with what patches have been applied to the CVS 
tree, subscribe to the mythtv-commits list.  If you are running or want 
to run CVS, you should definitely be subscribed to both the -dev list 
and the -commits list.  Isaac & the other primary devs usually send a 
note to the mythtv-dev list when a submitted patch gets applied, but 
not always.  Plus, the mythtv-commits list is a record not only of 
patches that were applied & committed, but also of ongoing development, 
which may not be submitted to the list as a patch, as it's already in 
Isaac's local tree (or Thor's, etc...)
