Thanks for continuing the bijou branch of packages. I really appreciate the
work you and Axel (and others) did for 0.21 bijou.
I was wondering if you could give an overview of the above bugs so I don't
have to look up each bug individually. Are most of these bugs destined to
be fixed by 0.23 but not backported to 0.22? Have some of them been
rejected by the MythTV developers but you maintain them for your personal
I have not yet upgraded my 0.21-bijou system to 0.22, so I'm trying to
decide if I stick with 0.22-fixes or 0.22-bijou.
