Hey Ico,

I'm sorry, but I don't really understand what you mean. While I would
encourage the people from the Debian Multimedia Team to subscribe to a list
like linux-audio-tuning to discuss tuning issues and grab ideas from here,
I don't see how we could provide mirroring or any kind of services like
this (we have limited resources), and even if we could, I don't see why
*we* should do it.

If I understood the original mail correctly, this initiative is meant to be
integrated to *Debian*, and is meant to make the *Debian* distro better,
because it is *Debian* which has issues with linux-audio. Why should
linux-audio chime in ?
