Thank you for your invitation, that's exactly what we need to spread
the word and the good message. Now I have read the goals of
linuxaudio.org, then made a subscription to the consortium ML. Is that
the procedure to become a member of the consortium?

Do you set up the rsync cron job for the linuxaudio.org server? Or is
there a special administrator?

Our repository mirror is ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/linux/misc/jacklab , do you 
think it is a good idea that we make an account on our initial server
(Charlie) repository, which is not public, for the linuxaudio.org?

A short description of our project for the linuxaudio.org website:

JackLab (http://jacklab.net)
A community-driven effort to bring the best of Linux multimedia
experience to normal users and a low-latency platform for
professional audio and video work.
