> Overall, you did very well in filling in what you could. I have filled in the rest of the report that you weren't sure of, and made a few changes here and there. One thing to remember, is that when dependencies are asked for, the dependencies of the source package is what is being asked for. This means the source package libffado requires the list of dependencies given in that list to build. I hope that makes sense. To get an idea of what I mean, in a terminal, run apt-cache showsrc libffado to get a list of build dependencies.

If everyone is happy with what we have there now, Scott, feel free to go ahead and file the bug required to get the package reviewed. Don't forget to subscribe ubuntu-mir to the bug, and feel free to subscribe ubuntustudio-dev as well, so the whole team can track the progress of the bug.

Thank you for the kind words and I now understand the list of

I assume you have seen that a MIR-bug was filed and the reply.  If

I do not where the discussion is to take place that is mentioned.  Can
you (or someone) provide a little direction?

Also, I only listed the bugs for JACK in main on the MIR-bug.  I felt
that this would be a stronger case for inclusion.

Since apparently getting JACK into main isn't immediately enough
justification, should I also mentioned "support for firewire audio
deviees" as another justificaion on the MIR-bug report?
