It was in reply to an answer of a request I did regarding to the usage
of Mint Lisa with Ubuntu Studio meta packages.

My intension is to get a new DAW, since my old one is Edubuntu 10.10 +
Ubuntu Studio meta packages.

Note that I join a German forum regarding to Mint, but also note that
Ubuntu is Ubuntu is Ubuntu.

IMO your wish isn't a wise wish. E.g. what has got an Android tablet to
do with Ubuntu Studio, or much more worse, an iPad 2?

Please understand that usage of a production setup has to do with
several needs and different gear needs to work together. And again,
regarding to Mind Lisa, it's Oneric, Ubuntu Studio meta packages are
part of the official Ubuntu repositories.

Who is allowed to do requests on this list?

Since Kubuntu still is Canonical I suspect they are allowed. But as soon
as Kubuntu becomes a community project, AFAIK it will lose it's
"membership" at Canonical. Are Kubuntu users still allowed to do
requests then?

I can unsubscribe, no prob, but reconsider if your thinking is wise.

2 cents,
