Ardour uses libaubio. Do we ship denemo? For an audio flavour, shipping an 
old version of Ardour is like saying use another distro.

Yes that is hard to read, frustrating even.

I also believe there is a 5.0 version available for 16.04 that has not 
made it in there either. As I have been asked more than once how I got it 
(from proposed I think), it would be nice to have something on the web 
site I could point people to for proposed/backports or whatever.
