yes it does. It has everything to do with it. It was a package deal.
There was a need for people to have a turnkey ivtv 4.0 solution and
someone took the time to put the package together in a usable form.
it fits a need and it is appreciated by those of us using it. It was
stable for what it was intended. Just because people are using mixed
environments and not updating all of the systems in a cluster isn't a
reason for the maintainer to reverse the solution. If all machines
were upgraded the protocol issue goes away. 18.2 or 19.0 isn't on the
horizon. Something better that 2.0 has been needed for a while.
besides, you always have the option of using any one of several other
distributions or rolling your own. That's the whole point of "your
mileage may vary"

go for it. This is open source. Dive in and make it so. Don't put
demands on others.
