Thanks Harry,
I looked over the jack client example and it looked real easy, thanks. I
remember Robin Gareus trying to get me started a while back with a very
similar example. Thanks again Robin, I simply wasn't ready back then.

What I wonder though is the workflow of writing/improving the tutorial
and feedback. I just think it's an important part of this project.
If I'd had minor suggestions for code improvement, would I clone the git
repo, host it somewhere and make a merge request? Write a patch?
Will the tutorials mostly 'happen' in code comments or also on
