Kbtv application: I'm looking for someone who wants to take over maintainership/development

Kbtv is a small TV app for FreeBSD/KDE. It works with Brooktree/Conexant and 
with Philips SAA713x based analog TV cards (I actually recommend using the 
latter). AFAIK, it is the only properly working app that uses SAA (and unlike 
bktr, saa never freezes or panics). Also supports webcams that work with the 
pwcbsd driver. The tarball and some blahblah are now hosted at sourceforge 
(also still at my website).

I also put a "recruitment" message on SF: 

I want to withdraw from this project, and would love to pass it on to one or 
more people who are interested in this kind of app, rather than just 
abandoning it. There is a port for it as well, it would seem logical to hand 
over maintainership to that as well. It is in a good working state.

SF project page for kbtv: http://sourceforge.net/projects/kbtv

Relevant buzzwords: Python, PyKDE, SWIG, SDL, C, bktr, saa, pwc

If interested, let me know. I will gladly help you to get started.
