perhaps we could have two sections: free community sites and commercial
sites. linuxaudio.org could sit in between (this might even be reflected
in the layout of the webring footer)

as it happens, i'm a big fan of the lad icon, and we have worked a while
to make it known to the public.
it's the LAD logo, but everybody is invited to use it to "show their
affiliation with the LAD community". maybe we should broaden the concept
to "linux audio community".

anyway, it's not up to me to decide. frank neumann has the copyright
(the "affiliation" wording is his), and i would like to see it discussed
on LAD.

i would like to see all parts of the community (LAD, linuxaudio.org,
younameit) share a common logo to generate some "corporate identity"
both for the members of the communities and visitors, without each part
implicitly having to endorse everything the other does.

in the same move, i like andrea's offer of subdomains a lot.
in my personal view, something like the following would be perfect:

linuxaudio.org (to become a portal with links to all the sub-domains)
consortium.linuxaudio.org (what is now linuxaudio.org)
lists.linuxaudio.org (what is now the administrative part of the lad page)
community.linuxaudio.org (news about meetings and events, maybe a
user-driven news portal in the future)
software.linuxaudio.org (dave's site)
documentation.linuxaudio.org (all the stuff from patrick's site,
alsa-wiki, presentation material, press coverage, and whatever useful
remains after cleaning up the lad page)
alsa.linuxaudio.org (a link to the alsa site)
jack.linuxaudio.org (a link to jackit.sf.net)
ladspa.linuxaudio.org (a link to ladspa.org and plugin.org.uk)

i don't really care whether these are subdomains or directories, but i
would love to see all the major linux audio sites (that relate to more
than one project or, such as jack, provide an infrastructure of sorts)
collected here and maybe share some common looks.

don't get me wrong, i'm not intending to force anybody in, or annihilate
people's private efforts. it's just a "would be nifty" scenario to have
everybody under one roof, and it has the nice side-effect of alleviating
the remaining paranoia against linuxaudio.org :-D

i'm prepared to move the lad page over to linuxaudio.org if people don't
vote against it.
