Could this PVR add-on for Radio RDS make it into the official Kodi 17.0 release?

https://github.com/xbmc/repo-binary-addons/pull/57

That is, will this add-on be bundled with releases like all other PVR add-ons?

https://github.com/xbmc/repo-binary-addons

It is not yet listed in the official repository for Kodi binary add-ons:

https://github.com/AlwinEsch/pvr.rtl.radiofm

https://github.com/kodi-pvr

Sure hope it will be made part of the official Kodi 17.0 release.

AlbrechtL (Albrecht Lohofener) have a stand-alone streaming server for here https://github.com/AlbrechtL/rtl_fm_streamer

This server runs under Linux on a PC or Raspberry Pi but it can stream to clients running Kodi on any operating-system.

Hmm ... and *how* does this work? Is there an addon python script to be able to scan the frequencies for FM and DAB as well as store the found stations in a file (json or m3u or sowhatever). I've compiled rtl_fm_streamer for static binaries to use them on a NAS and found some binaries
Code:
Hardware/rtl_fm_streamer-0.5.3/root/usr/local/bin/rtl_sdr
Hardware/rtl_fm_streamer-0.5.3/root/usr/local/bin/rtl_tcp
Hardware/rtl_fm_streamer-0.5.3/root/usr/local/bin/rtl_test
Hardware/rtl_fm_streamer-0.5.3/root/usr/local/bin/rtl_fm
Hardware/rtl_fm_streamer-0.5.3/root/usr/local/bin/rtl_eeprom
Hardware/rtl_fm_streamer-0.5.3/root/usr/local/bin/rtl_adsb
Hardware/rtl_fm_streamer-0.5.3/root/usr/local/bin/rtl_power
indeed rtl_test works
Code:
[/] # //share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Public/rtl_test

... but how to use rtl_sdr or rtl_fm without wrapper to be able to use it?
Also I do not understand what is wrong with pvr.rtl.radiofm for kodi kryptonit ... is there a licence and/or patent problem?
