Just a heads up from the *other* related topic ("mythtv-vid branch needs
testing"). Looks like the -vid branch will be merged *very* shortly ( i.e. ~
2 weeks), might as well wait, then just carry on using your autobuild script
for the current trunk. It might be worth reading all the emails relating to
the original topic, as
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/282159#282159 gives a
fairly good reason for not doing this, however once it enters trunk I think
it would be more acceptable .

Also, do your scripts just build ubuntu debs, or do they build ubuntuized
debs (i.e. do they include all the helper scripts and etc. that come with
the ones from the official repos). It's not that I can't cope with doing
things myself (Been running Gentoo for 2 years), but I like not having to
think too much about menial stuff (like stopping the backend before running
mythtv-setup), and the auto configuration for dedicated myth boxes is nice.

Anyway, don't suppose you could still post your scripts, I'd like to have a
look at how you've done it all.

Regards, James
