[ubuntu-studio-devel] What should be included by default in Trusty?

To the best of my knowledge, there is nothing preventing adding
linux-sampler to a non-free repo, just as one can add things like
flashplayer and nvidia drivers. But, I haven't tried to get it in, and
from what I've seen, no one else has gone through with it either.

As for the selection of default packages for Ubuntu Studio, one must
consider that the mission of Ubuntu Studio is to be a sort of main
stream, simple to use, fully configured platform for multimedia
production. Especially good for new users to a Linux based platform.
We have defined workflows, audio, video, graphics, publishing and
photography, and it is those that we present to users.

My question on what packages to include, and why (it's quite important
to argue for the reason why), was more about what plugins are we
missing, is there something really useful that we aren't including. That
sort of thing.
And also, basic desktop stuff, that helps make things easy for users.
Preferably something that most people will want, and not just a minority
of our users. These are default applications, so anyone can install
additional packages as they please.

Anyway, I'll look at the proposals so far. It's only been one day, so
hoping there will be some more :).
