Are we sure we want to bring someone on for this? Traditionally, audio
development is a separate community project (ubuntustudio, for
example) due to the need for a custom kernel. It seems to me its a bit
outside the scope of our development focus.

Having said that, if there's somebody available who actually wants to
do this stuff (as compared to "I want to be an Arch dev, then I'll be
leet" -- we know how quickly that wears off...), I have no problem
with them being on the team. I just think it might be better to see it
as a successful community project first.
