Subject: [gentoo-dev] New ALSA maintainers

1 Hi,
3 We have some new ALSA maintainers: beandog, chainsaw, phreak
4 (and me helping out to start with)
6 It's of course up to the maintainers to choose how they work, but the
7 recommendations I have laid down have been that they focus on the
8 userspace side: utils, tools, firmware, lib.
10 I have suggested that herd support for the kernelspace side
11 (alsa-driver) be slowly reduced, by redirecting users who file bugs
12 against it to reproduce with the in-kernel drivers, and then let kernel
13 handle the bug resolution. This will remove duplicated maintenance efforts.
15 This will also mean no more stabling of -rc releases (and probably fewer
16 of those in portage at all).
18 alsa-driver won't be going away altogether, as it is still needed for
19 2.4 users (but we won't support them forever) and I think it may include
20 a couple of drivers which aren't yet in the kernel tree.
22 The alias for bugs is still alsa-bugs@g.o
