ccmixter has issues with allowable licenses. Some linux audio will not be 
allowed to be posted unless the makers are willing to relicense.

They may be a bit aggressive in moving things into the NC domain as well but I 
need to do further research on that before I can be sure.

I have stuff on ccmixter and on kompoz. Both have their plusses.

Do you mean ccmixter the site or cchost the platform? If the latter, please 
double check that license options are a config time choice and not hard coded 
or, if the latter, that it is easy to mod.
