Dear all,

Due to some particularly nasty scons bug, the ardour packages might
take longer to hit the archives than I had hoped. In the meanwhile,
please feel free to install ardour from my PPA at There are packages for
hardy and intrepid available.

In my PPA you may also find other packages that could be of interest,
such as jack 0.116.1 and ffado.

Please note, however, that anything you install from my PPA you do on
your own risk. These are *not* official Ubuntu Studio packages, and
they are *not* backed up by the Ubuntu Studio team. A lot of these
packages will never end up in backports archives. Be warned.

That said, if you do encounter issues, do let me know and I'll try to
fix things. And if you don't encounter issues, feel free to let me
know anyway :-)
