hey Ralf... the offical IRC channels are logged at
http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/ if you would like to browse through them. the
reason i suggest the IRC is that an exchange such as the one you and I have
had for the past week or so could be taken care of in a few minutes on the
IRC. you really dont need to 'subscribe' in any official sense. you just
join and start typing. if you are asking "how do i get more involved?" and
im answering "help me in the IRC support channel, and communicate in
realtime in the -devel channel with the dev team", and you are saying "no
thanks", then thats fine. you can keep up with the minutes and the logs of
the meetings as they occur (in the IRC channel on freenode
#ubuntustudio-devel) and make sure you are subscribed to the
ubuntustudio-devel mailing list
https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-studio-devel . otherwise,
if you would like to join the -devel IRC channel for a moment and check out
how it works, you can use this freenode webchat link,
http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntustudio-devel&uio=d4 . you *can*
be involved without being on the IRC for sure, but thats where the official
meetings occur, and thats where the seeds of these ideas get born, developed
and discussed (assuming you would like to be around when we are
brainstorming) such as the switch to XFCE. ALSO, i had mentioned potentially
maintaining a gnome2 metapackage (such as ubuntustudio-desktop-gnome)
HOWEVER, Scott Lavender officially inquired about gnome2's availability, and
gnome2 is being pulled from the repos in 11.10. we were hoping to have a
cycle or 2 to hang back at gnome2 if needed, but that is not the case. i
also mentioned on the -devel mailing list that if a group of users wanted to
maintain a gnome3 or unity ubuntustudio-desktop package, im sure that would
be welcomed. thanks.
