I think one of the most important things to have would be a debian RT kernel
that can be installed like any other deb package already can. This would mean
to patch/finetune a standard kernel to make it RT capable everytime a new
standard kernel is released. Maybe it could be sufficient not to do that for
EVERY single kernel version that is released but stick to some "milestone"
versions instead that nevertheless reliably do the RT and of course MIDI
This RT kernel could then be offered as a standard debian package in any of
the existing standard debian repositories, so that anyone needing RT could
install it on their machine in parallel to their previously installed
ordinary kernel without having to change a lot on their machines.
As for the LAU-related stuff:
It seems to me that there are some great LAU applications out there for which
there are no deb packages available (neither are Ubuntu packages). I think we
need some place where LAU programmers can announce their software (which has
been here so far) and make other folks aware of it and we also need some kind
of deb repository where programmers can release their software so we can all
apt-get it. Maybe this place could be on an official debian software site
with only one limitation: as this software tends to be updated frequently it
is kind of experimental and debian people would rather not declare this
as "rocksolid stuff" that can be mixed with the standard release of debian.
So people of debian could release LAU related software on their sites without
having to give any "warrantee" for it.
BTW: when having a LAU related repository I look forward to seeing DSSI-VST
and fst released as true apt-get installable packages ;-)
Just my two cents...
