"The consortium aims to co-ordinate joint projects between members,
collaborate on the promotion of Linux based systems for audio tasks, and
provide a single point of contact for both prospective Linux users and
IIUC it should serve and protect the community and its members. Isn't
LAD such single point of contact? Who are you trying to help?

All i wanted to say is, i see LAD and LAU as the *only* place for linux
audio community(not because i say so but because it *evolved* in such
place) and the community as the authority.

So keeping such projects confidential until "ready", and not accepting a
community place although it's been here from 1997 or so isn't childish?
