Where should somebody do her homework? The Wiki is intended for
professional audio homework. Sure, the professional user needs to find
a few things out by her own, but the original information for the
homework shouldn't give bad advices.

Even fixing small issues does help. At the moment the Ardour
package from official Arch repositories isn't well maintained. A
professional not involved in the community can't know this, that's why
I e.g. pointed to the AUR, to build Ardour. Do you expect somebody needs
to find out this by her own? Why? The Wiki is made to provide such

Then there's a pointer to use 1000Hz for those compiling their own
kernel and at the same time there are links to PKGBUILD that do use
configs with CONFIG_HZ_300=y for RT patched kernels. The Wiki is there
to help users, to understand why 1000Hz might or might not be required.
