Fedora has a policy of not shipping a heavily patched kernel, but
instead tries to work with upstream to get any needed patches
integrated. This policy extends to not shipping any addon drivers, but
rather working to get drivers integrated upstream.
As such I've decided to start spending my spare time on getting more and
better usb webcam support integrated upstream (for non usb video class
devices). I wanted to have something to show, so I've gone to the store,
bought a couple of webcams and started hacking and learning.
There is a partially completed driver for an Acer webcam here:
And I have the hardware...
