Yes, i remember your question. The package of the dxr3-plugin is
really ready (like many other plugins) to be uploaded to the official
archive, it is in the Tobias's svn-repository on e-tobi.net
(http://www.e-tobi.net/wsvn/vdr-pkg/?rev=0&sc=0). I allready told him
about your intentions to maintain the package and he is going to move
it from e-tobi.net to the svn-repository on alioth in the next hours.

Welcome to the project! I have just added you to the project on
alioth, you should now have working write-access to the
svn-repository. You can find a short description how to build the 
packages via svn-buildpackage on http://pkg-vdr-dvb.alioth.debian.org/
If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

It would be really nice, if you could ITP this and a few other
packages which are in the repositories on alioth and e-tobi.net,
allmoast all important vdr-plugins are allready packaged and more or
less ready to be uploaded to the official archive, but due to my
limited spare time, i did not upload new plugin-packages since the
release of sarge. (It would be really nice if we could add a few of
these packages to the official archive before the release of etch.)
