For pkg-multimedia list users: Rosea asked on Debian Blends mailing list
about problems using blends-dev and seeing that it is multimedia related
I think it is reasonable to discuss the issues here (and by doing so)
stress the Blends topic a bit more as I did in.

For my understanding there is no real need to keep things like this
personal / privately for the purpose of a commercial or Ubuntu use. As
Debian is Upstream for Ubuntu and Ubuntu might serve as upstream for
your commercial distribution pushing things into "upstream" might not
harm at all. I actually see the Blends effort as a good chance to base
commercial applications on these subsets of Debian because it makes
things easier even for your business. It is finally your decision
but the concept is quite open to this application.

Just feel free to subscribe a reasonable Debian Multimedia list
and I hereby repaetedly urge for a non strict packaging related
list (like this) but rather than (miss-)using the pure packaging
pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list
