I might have misunderstood something. Is Debian Multimedia a full featured
distro like 64studio or UbuntoStudio or an effort to make debian look
better regarding audio packages ?

My point was : if Debian Multimedia is just an effort to make things better
looking on the audio/multimedia side, then it has more to do with the
"Debian packages and process" group of people than with the linuxaudio
