Hi:

I'm not too familiar with Fedora's packaging guidelines, but it's
possible they wouldn't want us to ship media files. But it does seem
like a good idea... if we can somehow make it super-easy to get stuff
to make stuff with, more stuff will be made.


Here's where it is documented: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Code_Vs_Content

Loosely you could consider hydron drumkits gig files or sfaz as fonts, so I see know proble with that, as long as we can package them where they will be found by an application.

Impulse response files are really useful bu there is no standard place for them as yet.


However, I suspect the 'best practices' strategy is to post RPMs on
RPMFusion, rather than to ask users to download from a SourceForge
project. RPMFusion already hosts several packages with features
unacceptable for official Fedora packages (like MP3 support).

Of course, if RPMFusion also doesn't want to host our RPMs, then a
SourceForge project is a good choice. Is it possible to set up an RPM
repository on SourceForge?

I've had conversations with others about packaging content material
for the Audio spin and it doesn't seem like that currently possible
with how things are packed in Fedora.

I know we don't quite have our package list together at this point,
but I think there's a need for decent content for some of the
plugins like samplers, reverbs, drumloops and the like. I think the
more stuff like this we have available immediately for the audio
spin, the more end users we're going to attract. Even presets for
things like graphic EQs and the like. Anything to make less hassle
for users...

Anyone else feel this way, or am I alone in my line of thought? I
may be easily persuaded after seeing it from another's point of
view and I wonder how important it is in the large scheme of
things.

On a side note, I have sourceforge project that we could host
content at if needed. (hurray for unlimited bandwith and drive
space for large files) I know we're a ways off in implementing
something like this, but it's not too soon to start gathering
resources for it.
