Responding to option 2:

I've terminated the book project, at least my involvement in it is over.
My publisher and the contributors have known this for a few months, I
apologize for not announcing the fact earlier, but as you can see from
my updates to I've not exactly been keeping up.
Various reasons prompted my decision, family concerns being the most

Re: book structure: As far as I'm concerned, go ahead, use it, it's just
a chapter succession. Lots of new headings should be added anyway.

By the way, I'm fairly certain that all my stuff published by LJ and
O'Reilly still belongs to me. They're pretty decent about it, all rights
revert to the author after a certain period, a nice nod from publishers
towards reusability. Anyway, again as far as I'm concerned the community
can assemble and revise that stuff as it sees fit.

And let's face it, folks, and its mirrors are
doomed. I'm so tired of the maintenance that I'm just not doing any at
all. I'd like to see the community take over the lists and perhaps use
them as bases for a wiki catalog of Linux sound and music software.
Meanwhile I plan for one more update this month, then I'm unlikely to
continue working with it any longer.

I'm sorry but too many other important factors in my life require my
attention now. Writing another book and maintaining are
unfortunately excluded. I'm not disappearing, I just can't manage those
particular projects.

Best regards,
