Given that there are several audio oriented distributions based on Debian

IMHO it makes perfectly sense to try to join forces with these Debian
based distributions and try to comaintain a -rt kernel package together
with these guys to ensure a solit maintenance inside Debian.
A lot of linux audio users build their own patched kernels, because they can't
get it from the distribution;
So why don't these people try to go the right way (tm) and work on an
official -rt kernel package?
and not all of them enjoy doing it. (I've kept
postponing it, but if I don't find one in a distro soon, I'll probably have
to... the current Ubuntu rt kernel seems to have some other issues I
believe... at least on 64bit...)
One reason more to finally solve the problem in the source distribution
to make sure that all derivers will profit from it.
