Hi All,

I think the core devs seem to be in agreement about two proposals:

1.  a "cgi" or "nocgi" flag to avoid installing optional cgi scripts in
certain packages.  Further info here:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10536#c54
but add xawtv to that.  Actually, this one I know one other core dev agrees.  Waiting for input from you all.

2.  A media-tv category for 10 or 11 tv-related apps, most of which currently sit in media-video but some are spread about the place:
media-video/nvrec 
media-video/linuxtv-dvb
media-video/kwintv [ Masked ] Seems to be an active rewrite in progress for kde3
media-video/aatv [ Masked ] This looks dead.
media-video/nvtv
media-video/tvtime [ Masked ] Seems active.
x11-misc/nxtvepg (maybe)
media-video/xawtv
media-video/zapping
media-video/xawdecode
media-video/vcr

as well as mythtv in the above bug report; and hopefully freevo at some point as well.

I think the second issue (media-tv) is pretty much unanimous, as nobody has had any objections.  The first issue requires some thoughts, though.
