It does:

$ apt-cache show brasero
Depends: libbrasero-media3-1 (= 3.2.0-0ubuntu6) [...]

$ apt-cache rdepends cdrdao
Reverse Depends:
  libbrasero-media3-1 [...]

Ok, good call. I'll add it to the audio seed.

I don't understand this. Why should they go away? Thunar is the default file
manager in Xubuntu. We're basing our DE on Xubuntu.

If you wanna talk about app selection, please do add an agenda item in one of
the future meetings (the next one is this Sunday, 22nd of January).

What's this about? Scott just uploaded the -low-latency package (kindly provided
by abogani) to REVU, and while it hadn't appeared at the time of writing this
message, there's no reason for it to not make it in time for the release.

There will be big changes soon, so keep watching the development. Alpha-2 is
looming, and we want lots of stuff done by that.

Thanks for the update, though! We need to generate some weight on the lists as
well, so people not on IRC get informed too.
