Re: Please Improve Debian for Multimedia Production
taste they need to be informed what to choose from. It's like a
where you choose from a menu. Currently we are lacking a complete
"menu" in Debian.
An menu entry for multimedia sounds good to me

and links to the homepage of the projects to enable a quick overview.
In how far it is different for instance to Debian Junior's puzzles page.
There are a lot of nice puzzles in Debian and you will finally pick some
favourites of them. So why not presenting a reasonable overview about
what is there?

production. Without that, you better stay away from music production
imo. Ubuntu Studio has also some metapackages for video, music and
artwork, but they also have an realtime kernel and a tool to handle the
