I'm not a packaging expert, but that certainly sounds plausible.

Oh wait, the code you referenced is from March.  Shouldn't
it have made its way into a PPA that I grabbed on June 30th?
I did add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/31; apt-get install mythtv
on that date, and I just ran this right now:

$ apt-cache policy mythtv
  Installed: 2:31.0+fixes.202106102123.0680b37c68~ubuntu20.04.1

I'm a bit confused.  If you like, I could send you the complete
transcript of the installation as a gzip'ed attachment, along with
/var/log/apt/{history,term}.log if they'd help sort this out.
