Yes, it inspired me. But I need to study it more carefully to understand
what I don't understand.

Yes, I would like to have a minimalistic set of sound
recording/editing/music composition tools on the disc -- enough to create
a sound track for an animation, say.

My tentative title is: The Debian Creative Arts Collection

Thank you. I will repost my original letter to debian-custom@lists.

I did look at the archives for that list and noticed that the last few
months seem to have been coopted by porn/quick-cure quack spam, so I
wasn't sure that it was active any longer. Is there any way of cleaning
out that junk?

Hope to continue the conversation.

Took a look at your site, but my German's not quite up to it. But I did
very much enjoy your photography.
