Demudi is a Custom Debian Distribution. In part that means that the
efforts made within demudi are intended to be fed back into the main
distro. Demudi could/should be seen as the testing and proving ground
for figuring out how to make all that stuff "just work" within the
larger Debian framework. Much of the work done on demudi has already
led to improvements on the audio front in mainstream debian.
