Because this is an opportunity to extend distro transparency and ultimately
allow developers to spend more time on developing rather than dealing with
differences between distros.

Besides, we already mirror UbuntuStudio, JACKlab, and 64Studio, so why
shouldn't we also encourage Debian Multimedia to join the consortium and in
turn allow them to use whatever resources we may have.

All that being said, I do agree with you that we have limited resources, and
in part I am hoping that through these kinds of initiatives we could bring
in more contributors to the core Linuxaudio.org services.
