[linux-audio-dev] Request to audio related LiveCD packagers

I recently tested two audio/multimedia oriented linux live cds (namely
Dyne:bolic 1.2 and Agnula LAM edition), and was rather disapointed to
see that alsa was only partly shipped on those distributions. The
alsa-tools and alsa-firmware packages were lacking, which renders some
cards useless (e.g. the RME hdsp Multiface and Digiface cards need to be
fed with a binary configuration data file found in alsa-firmware, using
hdsploader, to be found in alsa-tools - without this operation those
cards will simply not work).
