Hi all,
I've just adopted the bug #520271 (RFA: ecasound2.2), I think it is a good
candidate to get maintained by the Multimedia Team. 

The main problem I see is that the source package is named 'ecasound2.2' 
even if the current version is 2.7.0 (2.7.2 if you consider upstream). 
>From the README.Debian:
     ecasound2.2 release was a major change from 2.0 series; 
     and that was the reason for ecasound2.2 package name; we had two
     versions to coexist.

     For transition purposes Debian source package name still retains 
     the ecasound2.2 name.

I think this may lead to confusion and renaming the source package to just 
'ecasound' would make things cleaner and clearer. AFAIK a solution would be 
to upload the new 'ecasound' and ask for removal for the 'ecasound2.2'. 
Is this right?

Also, there are a lot of problems with the packaging (e.g. 24 lintian
warnings, "ancient" packaging and a lot of mess with the generated binary
packages) that would probably make easier to re-start packaging from
scratch (this would be made easier by replacing 'ecasound2.2' with
'ecasound', see above). What do you think?


P.S. If anyone is interested in helping with this, I'll push everything
to git as soon as I finish initial clean-up.
