Adi, Well hmmm

I can't elaborate much more than that unfortunately, it was not discussed
in specifics but a standalone binary (like the others you mentioned) was
the general idea, Seablade also said something similar on the Ardour forum
recently again without any detail.

A sincere and heartfelt "THANK-YOU!!!" for the updated JACK and FFADO
stuff, I am still shipping JACK1 to satisfy some 3rd party dependencies
but I'll look forward to it whenever you get to it.

At the risk of sounding stupid (well perhaps stupid-er), I have this
'experimental' line in my sources.list:

deb experimental main non-free contrib
deb-src experimental main non-free contrib

However there doesn't seem to be any of the pkg-multimedia stuff in there
I'm looking for, am I missing another or different experimental

Guidance appreciated, and thanks again for your attention to JACK, FFADO,
and Ardour packaging!

Best -GLEN
