It was a message to you and not meant to be public. Not a very big deal to me either.

I for one appreciate being kept "in the loop": The question was asked in public (I am subscribed to the Blends list too).

That said, I do understand you disliking being quoted in public when sending privately - without being asked ahead. I myself have turned friends against me doing that in the past (and try restrain not to not to do it ever more).

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.

I always try to improve the state of linuxaudio cq debianaudio where possible. The question is whether there is really a need for such packages in Debian, because many people prefer the custom way, especially Debian people imo. For Ubuntu you have the ubuntustudio packages.

If someone else thinks such metapackages are really useful also for Debian and starts making the metapackages, I'm open for helping a bit. We could share the same code base. All though my personal stuff will likely be different (and changes a lot very often).

We discussed this recently here on the Multimedia list, and yes, there is interest.

I can imagine how in the end you might want to use a fork of our shared effort, but would certainly appreciate if you would join this team effort for any and all parts possible, and only put into your fork the parts that we do not agree on (e.g. if you want to include packages from debian-multimedia.org which we actively avoid here, or if you want to include DFSG-nonfree parts).

So please, if you can be persuaded, join our team! :-D
