Issue tracking for stk1160 github repository disabled

Ezequiel requests to inform anybody using the stk1160 driver, that stk1160 github issue tracking is *GONE*. 

"Stk1160 is a regular kernel driver, so it's not special and there's no reason
in having a special bugzilla/forum/mailing list or issue tracking."

Nevertheless, the sourcecode will still be available on stk1160 github for people who want to use the stk1160 driver with kernels 3.2 up to 3.6.

If you have questions concerning driver issues or want to report a bug please visit this link: http://linuxtv.org/lists.php
or use the video4linux mailing list (linux-media@vger.kernel.org)
or try asking in the IRC channel (#v4l).  

" The regular kernel channels work just fine, and you can get answers from developers. "
