Actually - the bug fixing has not gone exactly to plan. This is mainly
due to a lack of time, but also due to the fact that I don't know our
software packages that well, because I don't use them often. This is
mainly due to my Home Studio setup being full of very outdated equipment :-)

But seriously, I could do with some help to produce some good audio
troubleshooting guides. There is a lot of good stuff on Ubuntu wiki's,
and other sites (and I see a lot of good troubleshooting advice on our
-user list), but I have not had a chance to pull it all together on our

I did make a start on taking part in this by updating manual test cases
for Audacity and Audacious and starting on qtractor.
If you are a user without a lot of software developing skills, this is
an easy area to get into. If the process is too scary - just send a test
case to this list in the form of a text file and someone else can do the
rest. It only needs to test the basic functions of the program (e.g.
Open file - edit something - make some noise etc..). The test cases are
basically in the form of:
- Click something
	- some window opens
- Click something else
	- the song can be heard playing
