    Hm... This is a huge commit. IMHO, this would be easier to review if split into some smaller. I can see at least general autotools updates (partly the same as my), Darwin-specific but otherwise generic buildsys updates, new remote definitions and the "real" changes - the latter could perhaps be split as well.

    That said, I'm not upstream, it's just my 5 öre.

    OK, I have splitted this commit and merged into my tree (which hopefully will be merged upstream at some point).

    You can find the actual state at, in the devel branch.

    The Darwin build fixes have been merged verbatim in a commit [1] labeled "scripts, lircmd.c, ir_remote_types.h: Darwin build fixes"

    The hw_hiddev patch is also more or less verbatim in a commit[2] labeled "plugins: hw_hiddev.c: Add sonyir support". However, the context here is different since drivers are built separately and loaded dynamically. This also means that many other changes to e. g., and just don't apply. Instead, the new driver is included in doc/hardware.yaml, the source for the driver table and the configuration support (lirc-setup).

    I have split the lircd.conf file into separate files for each remote. This makes maintenance a bit simpler. However, if it's a reasonable scenario to use several of these remotes at once we need to reconsider this.

    I'm very interested in feedback. The first would be if the commit labeled "contrib, doc: Add some irexec support" actually builds on Darwin. Of course, the same question is also highly relevant for the tip of this tree.

    Hope you still have some interest in this. I'm doing what I can to get it upstream. I cannot promise anything, but I have some kind of dialog with the upstream - not everything of this is visible, though.

    The Darwin build fixes are now in the misc-fixes branch on (see mailing list) which hopefully will be merged "soon". Again: feedback welcome!

    Alec, thanks for picking up what you did! For what remains, I'll split this up into more manageable pieces and try again.

    You're welcome, and thanks for your work! Note that the future lirc is in the ng branch.

    I'm on holiday, it will take some time before I look into lirc...

    Most of this is actually merged, and if/when something more should be it's probably better to create a new request. many thanks for these patches!

    Hm... Have you any chance to test what's in master as of now? You seem to have a remote to test with :)
