There have not been significant policy, UI, or package additions/
removals to base PulseAudio or ALSA userspace components in
jaunty. To what are you referring specifically?

The kernel team has a similar page. However, the problem is one
of low signal to noise - lots of bugs being filed, many dozens
being duplicates, with people often chiming in with tangential

I offer that the high priority bugs are very visible, and an
additional wiki page will not change how the developers
prioritise. It would be immensely helpful for an initial glance,
and perhaps drive-bys would find it useful.
