OK, I now also think that a special page should be created *only for
sound cards*, and create a main separate site for AudioLinux if you want
(even if I think that this topic is too general for a wiki in my opinion)
then, at the "sound cards" page, only soundcards should be listed, not
all "LA_" sites
(that makes it more easy for readers... I have already found a person
who didn't notice that the alsa matrix was linked at the site, as it was
devoted to LinuxAudio in general...
so maybe a solution may be rename "LA_Linux Audio" to "LASoundCards"
and name every soundcard page as "LASoundCards_Manufacturer_Model"
(then make the engine search for LASoundCards_* pages)
for example: "LASoundCards_Creative_SBAudigyOEM"...
then all other LA topics, may be created with the syntax: "LATopic"
for instance "LASoundfonts"
and if you want to create a main site, LAMain may work
do you agree?
