Hello all,

Just a quick word from me to add that not only linuxaudio.org monitor this
list closely, loads of linux/FLOSS related websites do too, some of them
totally unrelated to audio. But then again, each person who posts an
announce here is responsible for what kind of publicity he/she provides for
his/her software...

Although, one has to admit that most posts are well written and have a
professional look that I like a lot.

+1 cent...
