I don't think the hard link cutter will be ported to 1.7.32+ in the near future. I am sure if this patch should be a showstopper since today most disks a big enough to handle the data.
For me, I don't like the file splitting at 4 GB or even much smaller sizes (I use 16 GB+ and I do not need FAT32 compatiblity), so this patch is nearly useless to me.
kls implements some enhancements in the cutter code in 1.7.32 and 1.7.33 which should be in this release (dropping dangling packets, fixes timestamps, fixes continuity counters, ...).
Instead I vote for a patch to remove the NALU12 data.
The 1.7.x series versioning incompatibility issues alone are pretty much a showstopper as far as updating F-18 or earlier is concerned, no matter what happens to hlcutter.
As someone who uses hard link cutting a lot and knows its advantages first hand very well, I won't consider shipping an update to F-18 or earlier that drops it, that'd be a big regression. Disk or recording sizes are not relevant; it's a matter of recording cutting taking a few seconds (with hard link cutter) vs a *lot* longer time.
I don't know how the NALU12 thing is related to this issue. Maybe it should be tracked in another new bug?

Great! I vote for inclusion into F18!

Most likely won't happen due to ABI/API incompatibilities, and there are still the jumpplay and hard link cutter regressions to solve, VDR 2.0 with another ABI incompatibility around the corner etc.
Besides, for those who want a newer version, the rawhide VDR packages can at least currently be run on F-18 as is, that's what my VDR setup does: IIRC enable the rawhide repo, and add includepkgs=vdr* to its config so other unwanted rawhide stuff won't sneak in.
