I had not realized they were doing this. In any event, plugins like MythWeb
will need libraries to access the data, so there will have to be some way to
continue to get what is required.  Thanks for the tip.

No, the only thing that's slower with the "official" upstream source is

waiting to get your changes reviewed and integrated.

I should be more specific in my response. The slowness isn't the difficulty
in using the github system for me, it's more the going through and learning
the current coding standards in MythWeb then implementing an iPad specific
theme on top of that. Along with that, I would have to release an iPad
application to the App Store anyway, to enable full-screen use of the
WebApp. I just know I could pump out a native iPad application much more
quickly (because of my skill set), and it would enable me to consider an
independent daemon for launching external Frontend programs, like Hulu
Desktop. (I could do this through MythWeb, but it would also require changes
to the frontend source, which I am not at all familiar with.)

That being said, I will probably spend at least a little time reviewing the
MythWeb source, and potentially in the Dev list, to see if there is an easy
way to integrate. Certainly something built specifically into the existing
distribution would be favorable.
