The contrib scripts are being moved to the wiki.  The ones in 0.23-fixes 
are basically DOA, so if there's a good change to be made to a script, 
it should be done through the wiki (which someone referenced earlier in 
the thread - http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/6200ch ).  No tickets on Trac.

If it's a controversial change or likely to cause issues for some users, 
it should be discussed in the Talk page for the wiki script page and 
here on the -users list (requesting volunteers to test with various 
STB's, etc).

If someone makes a change that breaks things, it can be reverted through 
the wiki.

If, by "bugzilla," you mean that there's a separate site for the 6200ch 
script, the wiki page should be updated, the script removed from that 
page, and a reference to the /real/ home page of the script (and 
download location) added to the wiki page.
