Greetings from the newly-formed team at Easy TV Data,

This organization was formed by members of various software projects in
response to the announcement from Zap2it Labs that they will be
discontinuing the free TV listings service that they have been providing
to the non-commercial free and open source communities for the last 3+

We know that many of you are waiting on the edge of your seats to find
out what's going on behind the scenes here, and we're just as excited to
tell you, but we can't give you many details while we are still involved
in negotiations. We can, however, let you know that we are actively
working on a solution that will provide what we hope will be a smooth
transition away from Zap2it Labs by the September 1 deadline. We will
release more details as soon as we are able to do so, so please keep an
eye on http://easytvdata.org/ for updates.

In the mean time, we are in need of a good lawyer who is familiar with
business contracts and federal nonprofit law (preferably someone willing
to work pro bono, at least initially). We are also looking for a good
accountant (we are registered in Washington State) to help with any
eventual financial/tax paperwork. If you are qualified and willing to
help, please contact us at http://easytvdata.org/contact.php .

Thanks for sticking with us,

The Easy TV Data Board:

Isaac Richards, Chairman  (MythTV)
Robert Eden               (XMLTV)
Daniel Kristjansson       (MythTV)
Kevin Odorczyk            (MacProgGuide)
Chris Petersen            (Mythtv)
