At least creating DVDs is definitely useful. Try handing over some VDR
recording to my parents-in-law and watch them trying to watch it ;)
Just running it throgh dvdwizard and burning it on a disk is more effective.

While going through the build failures in Extra, I found quite some
packages that are already maintained in openSUSE BS (and not only taken
from packman to build there but also the other way round and then
seemingly abandoned on packman).

I'll put up a list of those to discuss removing them from packman sooner
or later.
