Just to keep you guys up to date... thanks to Hans for spearheading this
effort (second push to move packages to Fedora). Anyone in the list
wants to help? The infrastructure is there in Fedora-land for packaging
contributions, etc, etc...

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:

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,
