I am very interested in the -lowlatency kernel.  I believe this to be the
future default kernel for Ubuntu Studio installations!

Which kernels you use on per day basis (so you can provide at least

Currently I have been using the -generic kernel because it provides more
than adequate performance for my hardware and needs.  However, when we start
testing and maintaining the -lowlatency kernel in the repositories I should
use it exclusively.

I would expect to help with testing, packaging, Ubuntu relations, and Studio
relations ;)

I would like to see the -lowlatency kernel supported and maintained for
every Ubuntu Studio release.

I should also point out that we CANNOT maintain a current (meaning aligned
with the Ubuntu kernel) -rt kernel (or -realtime kernel) for each Ubuntu
Studio release.  In fact, I am of the strong opinion that we shouldn't even
discuss aligning the -rt kernel to any particular Ubuntu Studio release, LTS
or otherwise.

I believe we should maintain the -rt kernel in a PPA (since it cannot be
maintained in the repositories anymore) and update it as the patch becomes
available, regardless of the current Ubuntu kernel version.  This means that
we will be providing the latest -rt kernel as they become available in the
only medium available to us.
