Dear Release Team,

Version 0.3.6~b03+cvs20070813-12 of vdr-plugin-dvd (which already is in
unstable for more than a month) fixes an important bug #501337 [1]. The
package is of priority "extra", which should qualify for a freeze
exception. All changes from 0.3.6~b03+cvs20070813-11 are documentation
changes (if you count debian/watch as documentation as well) and should
qualify for a freeze exception as well.

The changelog from 0.3.6~b03+cvs20070813-10 to 0.3.6~b03+cvs20070813-12:

vdr-plugin-dvd  (0.3.6~b03+cvs20070813-12) unstable; urgency=low

The patch [2] that fixes #501337 simply changes a plugin load error (which
would cause the plugin host to terminate) into a warning, when the DVD
drive is not available.

Thanks in advance,
