Actually, credit where credit is due: Not only a lot of packages are
Paulo's, but as well as most maintenance and new package creation is
his as well. One of these days ATrpms will be renamed to PCrpms ;)

Also Paulo does a lot of upstream communication and bug fixing, not
only with alsa, but anything that comes along, be that v4l, nvidia
bits etc.

Christopher certainly didn't check out any of the packages or work
mentioned in this thread to start shouting. He is just hate-triggered
by the mention of ATrpms and starts kicking in any direction not even
bothering to check out whether his accusations have any basis.

It's of course quite easy to make noise, but your work is certainly
highly appreciated!
