Hi all,

Do we have a dev here that wants to spend some time with the audio 
packages?  They have not received much love lately...

The jackbeat update requires moving portaudio from [community].  We also 
have ardour that is quite out-of-date but requires adding several deps 
to the repos.  I updated jack-audio-connection-kit, but it also needs a 
rework of is rc.d script to actually make it useful and I have not had 
time to address yet (if anybody wants to do this contact me for the 

So, what do we do?  Is there a dev who has time and interest to take 
these over?  Otherwise do we bring someone onboard to maintain these 
packages or encourage someone in the arch-audio group to become a TU and 
move them to community?
