Re: [patch] tvaudio: remove bogus check

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hello, Vitaly

Now the main development maillist of V4L is linux-media@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Posting to that maillist also helps patchwork.kernel.org to handle
patches correctly.

Mauro, what is the status of video4linux-list@xxxxxxxxxx? Is that user
maillist, or is it deprecated mail that should be disabled ?
