In general I agree with what I understand about linuxaudio.org and
your point of view.

Probably I need to make a more nuanced distinction between
linuxaudio.org and linux-audio-user at lists.linuxaudio.org. It's likely
not true for you running all this stuff but from the outside I see the
two as very intertwined. If the business of linuxaudio.org were to
become a large part of what is discussed on this list, or the list was
to start pushing folks to become Debian based as a policy, then I'd be
disappointed. I think it's best if this list is distro neutral. What
linuxaudio.org does is a different thing.

AND, I get that you are NOT suggesting ANYTHING about what I'm writing
is true. I'm just asking the question and developing my own point of
