Paul W previously put forward the idea of people taking on editor roles
for the new forthcoming database driven soundapps site. An editor could
commit to being responsible, as Juan suggests, for periodically checking
one category and keeping it up to date. I would be interested in taking
on such a category specific role. It might be easier to organize our
efforts that way than having any one person trying to maintain the whole
site. And of course, until Paul's site materializes, it will still help
to focus those same efforts on Dave's current listing.

I'm still hoping to spend some time on this this weekend. I'm sorry I
haven't, yet. I don't have anything like Juan's depth of experience
regarding trackers with any particular category so I won't be able to do
much more than check links. But, hopefully that will still be helpful.
I'm not sure which section is the highest priority. Are you suggesting
the MIDI stuff? I can take a swing at it. Though I was thinking of
taking something smaller first like the multitrack recorders/mixers

On another note, and perhaps this should be a separate thread, My next
step at home in converting my system to debian is getting alsa installed
and configured. I want to take notes and capture what I do so I can
contribute back the steps needed for my particular card. Do you know
where Patrick has the template for individual soundcard alsa HOWTOs?

Take care,
Eric Rz.

Hey, maybe we need to start the LADP (Linux Audio Documentation Project)
with it's own mailing list.</half-joking>
