There are three mailing lists used by the ivtv project.
- The ivtv-devel list is where development of the ivtv and cx18 drivers is discussed. Devel List Searchable Archive
- The ivtv-users list is intended for user questions and problems. User List Searchable Archives.
- The ivtv-commits list allows you to see what changes are being committed to subversion. Commit List Archive
- The linux-media list is where both development and user questions for Linux TV, video, and DTV drivers and applications are also discussed.
Before you post a message to a mailing list, have you read asking for help?
Ivtv mailinglist rules
- When asking for help include the information as specified by: http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/Asking_for_help
- You may not always get an answer immediately. Just repost your question a few days later. People may be busy and have no time to investigate your problem so be patient. And if the mailing list is very busy your post may have been overlooked.
- Prefix your questions for the cx18 driver in the subject with cx18.
- Send all of your e-mails in English.
- Make sure that you are using the proper list. In particular, don't send user-related questions to developer-related mailing lists.
- Wrap your lines at 80 characters or less for ordinary discussion. Lines longer than 80 characters are acceptable for computer-generated output (e.g., ls -l).
- Do not send automated "out-of-office" or "vacation" messages.
- Do not send subscription or unsubscription requests to the list address itself; use the respective -request address instead.
- Never send your messages in HTML; use plain text instead.
- Avoid sending large attachments.
- When replying to messages on the mailing list, do not send a carbon copy (CC) to the original poster unless they explicitly request to be copied.
- If you send messages to lists to which you are not subscribed, always note that fact in the body of your message.
- Do not use foul language.
- Try not to flame; it is not polite.
