One thing that would be nice to have, if it's at all feasible, is
qgtkstyle [1]. It's definitely not a must-have package, but since we
use a few qt4 packages in a gnome environment, this would make the
desktop look a lot more polished. It's been working fine for me for
quite some time. There are packages in my ppa, if anyone feels like

ffado, on the other hand, is a must-have ;-) And I'm curious on how
things are going with jack-in-main.

And I've been wondering whether it would be a good idea to maintain a
2.6.26-rt kernel, particularly if .28 doesn't turn out too well after
all. We could be joining efforts with 64studio, for example, when it
comes to realtime kernel packaging and maintaining. Judging from one
thread I stumbled into [3], it seems they're aiming for a 2.6.26
