I'm not suggesting an end-user portal at all. And it shouldn't be about
'pro-audio'. It should be about audio in general. See how ALSA has put
pro and consumer audio cards into one bag. That's because the
limitations of MME vs. ASIO, WDM or GSI had disappeared.
To me it's not about pro-audio and consumer-audio cards anymore. It's
about higher quality cards and lower-quality cards.
The same goes for software. There's no such thing as $1000 for pro audio
software when it comes to Linux Audio software.
What i'm suggesting is that we should build upon those values we already
have. LAD is definitely one of them. There's a set of mailing lists
where people virtually meet each other and discuss various things.
Those are all Linux Audio mailing lists.
LAD has been here on the internet for 7 years which means *a lot*.
It's a traditional place. It's a Linux Audio place just like LAU or LAA.
You're trying to promote JACK but JACK was born on LAD. LADSPA was born
on LAD aswell.
www.linuxaudio.org should be a website
where developers can find:
* a place for discussion - LAD
* news - projects, events, other developer community related stuff
that's LAA redirected to front page.
* developer documentation
* their prefered project
and where users can find:
* a place for discussion - LAU
* news - new applications and new versions of applications, community
* user documentation
* their prefered application
It's Linux Audio that needs promotion.
