I strongly believe that we have needed an official group with the aims 
of the consortium for some time now. I'm interested that you are so 
motivated to get the url changed.

I just updated my links for the LAU guide webring and changed the link 
for "promoting Linux audio" to "Commercial Linux audio". It made me 
consider why you want the url to be changed and I now strongly believe 
that it is in the best interests of commercial Linux audio that we 
retain that url.

It makes sense to me that if we are going to pool our resources to 
promote Linux audio we should also use the most obvious url in the 
world. Currently all the lists and websites you have mentioned that 
could be hosted by this url are well linked and established. There is no 
point in tearing all that hard work, time and effort down when we should 
be building it up by taking it to the next level. IMO the next level for 
Linux audio is commercial representation.

I am biased because I have financial interests in seeing commercial 
Linux audio succeed. However I have *never* heard from any of the 
developers that a financially successful Linux audio company will be a 
bad thing for our community.

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
