If I understand you correctly, we:
(A) already have that (see link below), and
(B) are not supposed to have it.
Official Fedora documentation is only supposed to document packages in
the official Fedora repository. If we followed that rule, the
SuperCollider, Qtractor, and real-time kernel chapters would not be
In the future, once SuperCollider and Qtractor make it to the official
Fedora repository, I will remove everything about Planet CCRMA at
Home. The only reason we have non-Fedora software now is that I didn't
know about the rule until after the Guide was published. And because
nobody told me to remove it.
What we can do is replace the "Planet CCRMA" chapter with a
"non-Fedora software" chapter. We can explain what software exists in
other repositories, and include a link to the Fedora Wiki. On the
Fedora Wiki, we *can* provide instructions for installing non-Fedora
software (as on the Flash page, for example).
It's not the most straight-forward solution for users, but I think
it's workable. Does anybody else have an alternate suggestion?
