Bug#178287: ITP: MAS - Media Application Server
Forgot to CC this to debian-devel. If someone is already working on
this, you need to be a bit more visible to search engines.
* Package name : mas
Version : 0.6.0
Upstream Author :
* URL : http://www.mediaapplicationserver.net/
* License : X
Description : Media Application Server
from the MAS site:
"MAS will provide a complete mechanism for media support, for all
pluri-modal media, for all platforms, for all operating systems, for all
MAS supports the desktop and, transparently, the network.
In particular, MAS will provide complete support for the X Window
System, across the network.
MAS is an open system: the complete core will remain under the original
MIT ("X") license, equally supporting open and proprietary use and
MAS provides mechanisms for structured extension, and will be supported
by dedicated testing and certification processes."
Basically what this means is that it is a transparent way to
get sound from an application to a sound device, similar to
what X does for video.
I'm also planning to package the related software on the site.
