neither. If you read my comments closely my suggestion was to have the
sub-domains (vhosts) become entry points. The content there will be the
same (or an updated version).

My original judgment on lau/quicktoots/lowlatency was: "good as is -
maybe some minor modifications" until we have the time to revisit it.
IMO updating the front-page and lad.linuxaudio.org is much more
important; as is reorganizing the /members and updating the /music page.

I find it a pity that you ignore suggestions to update it and rather
pull the plug instead.

The reason why I donate time to apps, wiki etc on linuxaudio.org is that
I've missed those features when I started with linux-audio.

I won't know about djcj; Have a look at
http://lalists.stanford.edu/lad/1998/ - I find this an amazing online
community. There's no need for anyone to crawl back under a rock even
after 10 years!

I'm very busy; maybe you can ask someone to help you?
Would anyone one the lists be interested take over maintaining the
lau.linuxaudio.org domain ?

sorry, I'm not feeling very cheerful.
