[Fedora-music-list] Announcing the Audio Creation SIG / CCRMA merger effort



Hi All,

I've been talking lately with Fernando Lopez-Lezcano from CCRMA about making Fedora a better distro for Audio Creation, mainly focusing on a plan for getting his excellent CCRMA packages integrated in to Fedora.

Here is the plan we've come up with (quoting from the SIG's wiki page):

"Since Fernando's time is almost fully occupied with maintaining CCRMA and keeping it up to date, the effort of the integration of CCRMA packages into Fedora will be mostly done by other Fedora Contributers. The plan is that Fedora contributers go through CCRMA packages spec files to make them fully match the Fedora Packaging Guidelines and then submit them for review and make any necessary changes to pass review. Fernando will be put in the CC of the review, and will be made co-maintainer of packages want the are imported into the Fedora Package Collection. This way the packaging expertise and manpower of the Fedora Community can be combined with the vast Audio Creation experience of Fernando. This effort will be spearheaded by Hans de Goede (me)."

The SIG wiki says Fedora Contributers, as I'm hoping that some of you are also interested in this and are willing to help out. There are a lot of CCRMA packages and we could use your help. Hence the creation of the Audio Creation SIG, where all interested contributers can join and help out. The Audio Creation SIG is further described here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/AudioCreation

Even more then help with checking and fixing the packages for guidelines compliance, we need people to review them, I've submitted the first 4 for review and many more will follow. So if you have some interest in Audio Creation under Fedora, please help with reviewing audio related packages, there is an continuously kept up2date list of packages needing review on the wiki page. As most of you know I'm a very experienced packager, so the reviews should go as smooth as a babies buttocks :)

Thanks & Regards,

Hans
