 Nice to hear that linuxsampler is improving, I hope they provide an API
 for it to be used generically for other than GigaSampler files (I must
 admit I"m biased towards that proprietary format).  There is still a bit
 of work to do to add GigaSampler support to libInstPatch/Swami.  I"m
 working now to get Swami 1.0 fully functional, and that in itself still
 needs a bit of work.  Once that is done I will look into adding more
 complete GigaSampler support.  Right now it will just load it as a DLS
 file (samples are parsed and instrument names, but not much else), and
 there is no save support for GigaSampler yet.

Always from a mail of Josh Green 2005-01-03 in swami-devel mailiglist:

 I"m getting ready to unveil an online instrument database for sharing
 instruments.  It already supports GigaSampler, SoundFont and DLS.  It
 needs a bit of beta testing though before going public.  I"ll definitely
 announce it on the Swami devel list when I could use some testers.

Probably there is only need the hard disk space for uploading samples, the better choice 
for distributing free giga collection could be done done trough bittorrent files on the site. 
Probably oneshotsample could collaborate with this archive of Josh Green (swami developer)?
