I suspect this will happen real soon after ivtv is merged in upstream
kernel and appears in Raw Hide (ivtv is currently being merged with v4l,
which will be then merged upstream)

There's no real point in packaging mythtv cleanly when the driver most
users need is not available easily without all sorts of fugly kernel
patching.

I know I will donate personnaly packaging time if necessary to make it
happen. But there's no real point now, packaging mythtv is one thing,
messing with the kernel is another. I have a lot of repect for the people
that try to maintain kernel modules in FE or livna but little wish to join
them.
