Sampo Savolainen (aka. sampo_v2) asked on #ubuntustudio today if the
settings in limits.config get set by default in ubuntu studio because
there are many ubuntu studio users without those settings asking for
help in #ardour.

The current situation is that these settings are made by the
meta-package ubuntustudio-default-settings which contains some other
settings as well and gets pulled by the meta-package
Which means that if a user wants just audio, whether he installs from
dvd or not, he gets audio, but not said important settings.

This situation should really be changed and the settings should
either get their own package or get tied to the audio package.

best regards
