Hi Laurent

I am very happy with the work beeing done with lprod and other groups around
linux and multimedia.
the main problem about Ubuntu Studio, is that people dont have patience to
work with ubuntu rules.
Ubuntu studio is a community version, but that is partly supported by
ubuntu. So freeze, new app insertions etc need to be made by ubuntu /debian
The problem is that people dont want to follow that rules, at least
packaging. If insted of making that new distros with other packages with
newers software, maybe the devs could join the already existing teams.
Ubuntu studio and debian multimedia and help packaging more upstream as
possible. because, they benefit from the work from others, but I dont see
them contributing back.
Shame on them. Falktx maintains a ppa for both ubuntu studio and kxstudio. I
understand he want to make a kde derivative, but why another gnome one???
why doesnt that devs come to the #ubuntustudio-devel IRC channel?

but, they do things on top of others.....

Audio linux users are very few, and if people start splitting, then it will
be worse... but is related to musician, everyone want to pass on top of the
others to say they are better, instead of collaborate....

sorry for the rant, but it is very disapointing to see this stuff happenn

PS. worse of all, they dont even use a good kernel for multimedia.....
