Good to hear! More of that praise goes out to kernel and alsa developers,
though. Our derivate does little in that respect.

Well, it's not exactly like that. It's actually the lack of contributors. We're
in desperate need of capable staff.

This mailing list is a good start. Most of us hang out on #ubuntu-studio-devel @ [], where some of the development conversation

We're also meeting semi-regularily on #ubuntu-meeting (see more details for
those @ [0]), and just recently started tracking the issues we want resolved
during the development cycle @ [1]. Thanks mostly to shnatsel and ScottL!

Welcome aboard! We sure do need all the manpower we can get. :)
