My apologies, since I agree with your point of view, OTOH Ray is the
one who has got all the needed skills. Actually he just needs somebody
to assist him maintaining packages. I'm often using packages from
jhernberg and schivmeister/Ray and edit them to build more recent
packages, so the packages much likely wont become too disgusting. David
has not to do much more, especially if we should have an Arch audio
mailing list again and all Arch audio user, including myself, are
willing to help, if David _should_ run into an issue.

I understand your concerns against Ray's "freakish" sponsorship,
anyway, consider to vote for David, because Arch audio has got no other
opportunity and Ray's sponsorship is based upon a good impression of
David's help, he already provided.
