Hey great!! Too bad you did not sync with me, I've been working this two
last weeks on pretty much the same stuff. But there are things that I
don't have which is great! What has delayed me this past week is work on
the menu system (I'm pretty much done and I was going to release a bunch
of packages later today). 

If I may suggest a couple of things after a quick look, ladcca is not
longer needed - I imagine it is there only as a result of previous
builds? I would drop qjackconnect in favor of qjackctl, the later is the
canonical jack server control app (and also sports a midi patchbay). I
added a patch for lash so that it does not need an entry
in /etc/services for the lash service (it will use the default instead).
You will be able to pick this later today from the srpm. DSSI is now up
to 0.9.1 and fluidsynth-dssi is a separate package (finally!). Are you
planning on packaging the Hydrogen kits separately? I used to have a
separate package but I merged them into the main package a while back...
the example drumkits and demo songs are very useful for demos, with them
(or at least some of them) it is easy to just fire up hydrogen and get
sound out of it. 

Another question... have you tried caps with ardour? I'm having problems
with that combination, selinux complains about something and the caps
collection does not get loaded at all.

I didn't... I could have answered a lot of those questions really

What should be packaged today, at least till that patch makes it into
cvs (that was going to happen a couple of days ago) is the clock_fix
branch of Jack cvs. Otherwise Jack will have problems in Athlon X2

Thanks, most probably most of it will be "trimmed", right? There was a
discussion long ago about keeping only a certain ammount of history in
the changelog. I don't know what became of that - I think they were
scavenging for space to avoid including one more disk in the base
