Thanks for the update. I've reported those packages as bug (wish/ RFP), 
among others!


Maybe you guys wants to pick up an package or other ones. There is good 
information about packaging here:


There are some nice developments in the team, like packaging FFADO and 
Jconv for Debian (among others) by some new package maintainers!

An other way to help is to report bugs and wishes. There are many useful 
audio packages which are in Debian. Also there are always new upstream 
releases, mostly reported via LAA, report new upstream packages, so 
packages are up to date in Debian and Ubuntu. Howto report bugs:


Thanks in advance,
