The biggest difference is that we (Debian) test applications along with

We try to provide ardour binaries along with the C++ libraries.

RedHat provides the C++ library only, and users try to build against them.

Debian has control over every library Debian ships, and application,
including ardour and all the dependency chain.
Just like you ship all your C++ libraries in your source tarball, we ship all
