I just want to make the kind people here aware of the ongoing harassment
against me by certain parties.
This now was forward to me by the CEO of MOD Devices, a company I work
for at the moment.
(Some content in Portuguese, as both me and Gianfranco speak that language).
While NON remains offline, me and all others that do Linux audio
development have been quietly minding our business.
I do not know who the sender is, but surely this is not okay.
I am posting this here since there are even links to this very mailing
list on the original email.
And it is relevant to the story anyway.

and the critical JACK project
under somewhat suspicious circumstances and more recently he took
control over the Non DAW project via aggressive tactics of harassment,
slander, deception, and abuse of power at his role in the Linux Audio
Consortium (which he claims to be the sole representative of, as a
dictator, without the consent of the other members of the Consortium).
Here is what the author of the Non project had to say about it:
Here is a recent discussion on the LAC mailing list about the subject:
And here are some discussions on the LAD mailing list about it:
Given the fact that Filipe has leveraged his employment at MOD Devices
to legitimize his claim to power and justify his actions, how do you,
as the CEO of Mod Devices feel about this?
MOD Devices, in particular appears to be a company whose entire
business model is based on appropriating the work of open source
software developers without offering them compensation. To the casual
observer, it seems that Filipe Coelho may be a plant/infiltrator put
in place to enable MOD Devices to take control over all the critical
subsystems in the Linux Audio space (presumably in order to generate
profit and/or inhibit competition).
Perhaps there are some journalists who might be interested in putting
these developments before a wider audience...
It seems like MOD Devices thinks they can beat Behringer at their own
game, but what will happen to your company when Behringer decides to
