This is certainly not the first discussion we've had about including LMMS,
and it probably won't be the last. None of the past conversations have
come to a conclusion that it should be included as there are other more
polished tools that complete the same or similar workflow. LMMS has had
stability issues in the past but maybe it's outgrown these now. My
personal vote would be to include it in the 'suggested install' section and
leave it off the actual disk. It's possible that reorganization of the
workflows and meta packages could find a slot where LMMS fits perfectly,
but I don't believe there's a spot it would fill right now.
