I'm sorry, but what does linuxaudio.org have to do with this?

The Debian Multimedia team is about packaging audio stuff for Debian.
This effort is to build and maintain Debian packages for Debian
(which will then flow into all the other Debian derived distributions).
It uses the Debian process which exists now and works well. The
Debain process includes a mechanism for veting contributors, providing 
access to resources, test building packages across all supported
platforms, and then distributing those packages across the world to
as many people as want them.

To try and replicate a quarter of what Debian provides outside Debian
is huge effort and likely to be a huge waste of time.
