Hi Nedko,

A while ago I proposed merging documentation efforts of the community,
spearheaded by Dave's now unfortunately cancelled 2nd edition of his
venerable book. Linuxaudio.org is already trying to head in this direction
and we are currently in the process of assembling a team to utilize
presently empty sub-domain docs.linuxaudio.org which ought to be perfect for
this purpose (rather than hijacking lau faq site which has its own specific
purpose). One possible scenario (which FWIW I very much favor) is to have a
Wiki page that would sum up all of the projects listed on Dave's site as
well as those that are also relevant but have not yet made it there. Using a
similar template format we should provide a continuously updated
consolidated resource for all Linux audio users, and more importantly all
Linux distributions to reference. As such, we are also hoping to attract
various distros to contribute to the same documentation project. So far
goto10 guys (dyne creators) have expressed interest in the idea...

Best wishes,
