Yeah.  That's it.  I also sent one directly to you with more 
information, but it seems you don't need it.  :)  The other message was 
a reply to your IvyTV post (New video4linux snapshot rpms with extended 
tuner support), but sent only to you--so you may have gotten it but 
thought it was from the list.

Glad you've got the corrected version ready to go.  You're just way too 
efficient with your package building...

Yeah.  It will.

Thanks.  I figured the best way to make sure you knew was to put a 
message on the Myth ML since you're always on top of things there.

And, for those reading the thread, *I* caused the problem by posting a 
bad patch after an all-nighter.  Axel's an innocent bystander caught in 
the mess I made.

>for the patches :)
Actually, I should be thanking you--for not hunting me down after my 
sending out a bad patch and confusing everyone from Gerd (main 
developer) to you (packager) to the end users, not to mention for your 
going to the extra effort to help correct my mistake.  But, with all the 
trouble I've caused for so many people and all the time I've spent 
trying to make sure people find the right patches, I've learned my 
lesson and will be much more careful with patches I send out.  To quote 
Joe Garelli from NewsRadio, "You can't take something off the Internet! 
It's like taking pee out of a swimming pool."
