Bug#958146: ITP: jamulus -- real-time collaborative music session client and server

Package: wnpp

Owner: Thorsten Glaser <tg@mirbsd.de>

* Package name    : jamulus
  Version         : 3.5.1

  Description     : real-time collaborative music session client and server

Jamulus, a low-latency audio client and server, enables musicians to
perform real-time “jam” sessions over the internet. It is available
across multiple platforms, so participants of any field can communicate
without specialist setup requirements. This is not restricted to music,
of course; other use (perhaps conferencing?) is also possible.
One participant starts Jamulus in server mode, ideally on a dedicated
server (virtual) machine; all participants start the (graphical) client
which transmits audio to the server, receiving back a mixed stream. Use
of a metronome is recommended.

I would like to try this out for making music together, but perhaps
it is of more general use. It currently is hampered by #686777 (but
can be uploaded to experimental with a workaround) as well as the
hard-coded CC-BY-NC-SA agreement upon joining a server, upstream bug
https://github.com/corrados/jamulus/issues/100 (which is no showstopper
for a first upload to experimental either). I’d only consider Jamulua
suitable for a release with this fixed, though.

I already began working on it.
