I might or might not agree with the above sentence (I don't,
especially because I don't quite digest people who tell me what I
should or shouldn't do) but in any case it answers a completely
As was already pointed out, mailing lists (as well as projects,
consortia, associations, whatever) get created and if there is no
interest they die (aside from the fact that the mailing lists
currently working on linuxaudio.org are quite consortium specific).
And anyway you can always Cc: two mailing lists if you feel a subject
is worth dicussing on both places.
> and using a domainname which can act as an entrance or a meeting
The whole issue of the domain name still looks quite ridicolous to me,
- linuxaudio.org is not the only domain name available which could
fulfill the role of a "entrance" or "meeting point" (as Steve Harris
already pointed out);
- linuxaudio.org has been available for ages. Why didn't anybody care
(why didn't *you* care) to register it if it had such a symbolic
importance for the whole "community" (whatever this "community" is) ?
Anyway, as a member of the Consortium, as soon as the voting
mechanisms are set up, I will propose the creation of relevant
sub-domains to host (and/or redirect to) Libre Software audio
projects. For example:
news.linuxaudio.org (for general news)
help.linuxaudio.org (for general help)
Any proposals are appreciated.

I don't get your point, but I'm very interested in your (or anybody
else's) ideas on how Libre Software can and should be legally
protected from abuse (which, mind you, doesn't necessarily come from
companies, but anyway).

I didn't understand this.
I've put firstname.lastname@example.org in Cc:, please keep it (and
remove linux-audio-dev if you feel this discussion is off topic here).
