The Linux Foundation has been paying travel for people presenting and
attending LAC in the past.

There is likewise little corporate interest in FOMS or VLC-dev-camp. You
might see a few google engineers and some chromium-devs there (mainly
due to ffmpeg). Pretty much the same number as there are Ableton
engineers at the LAC in recent years.

With csound, pure-data, supercollider moving to their own conventions,
FAUST and the academic world dominated the LAC lately.

Most innovation on the Linux-Audio user/consumer side in the last decade
actually happens at Red-Hat (pulseaudio, pipewire) not the LF or elsewhere.

Linuxaudio.org is serving the producer and authoring side and LAU is
doing just fine, isn't it?
