Hi folks,

Today I updated the PulseAudio snapshot for Karmic in the
ubuntu-audio-dev PPA[0] to 0.9.16-test5[1]. This staged update should
be considered a poll for deciding whether flat volumes[2] should be
shipped enabled by default (in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf). Please respond
to the ubuntu-devel-discuss mailing list.

Please test 0.9.16-test5 rigourously, and file bugs as you encounter
them, thanks!

Henceforth, Luke and I (and possibly others) will be placing staging
versions of related audio software in this PPA.

this PPA contains a patched udev. See
for rationale why this backported changeset was rejected. If you do
not use surround sound profiles, you can safely ignore this patched
[1] Really, it's 0.9.16-test5 just grabbed prior to the git tag being added.
