Excerpts from Paul Davis's message of 2011-07-22 04:52:56 +0200:

Interesting read, even if much of it is a bit over my head at this time.
However, I've noticed this horrible quote:
“Both read and write locks the buffer so it the pointers of the
buffer will be maintained consistent”

– JACK Wiki description of using ringbuffers
(http://trac.jackaudio.org/wiki/WalkThrough/Dev/LatencyBufferProcess?vers...)

Well, seems like Ross links to a specific version of this page and the
latest version only has an additional comment that says this stuff is
at least half-wrong
(http://trac.jackaudio.org/wiki/WalkThrough/Dev/LatencyBufferProcess?vers...)

It would be nice if someone knowledgeable could fix this page instead
and ask Ross to link to the page in general instead of a specific
outdated version.

Keeping wrong or half-true information doesn't help anyone.
