This community is much bigger than you seem to think. There are several
thousand members of this list and Linux Audio developers has more too.
Then there are the various other lists that people contribute to on a
regular basis who have nothing to do with this list.
My best estimate is there are at least 10,000 active contributing members
of the global Linux Audio community.
If that was a company then we would be a decent sized organisation and
bringing in at least a billion dollars a year.

In terms of a mission statement for Linux Audio Community we already have
the Linux Audio Consortium. My suggestion is that if someone wants to add
value to that discussion they should look at contributing to the
If the Consortium does not provide the platform then just put your ideas
out here and see who wants to contribute.
Otherwise find a project that you think is a good starting point for your
objectives and get involved. The more, the merrier...
