Hi:

If I understand you correctly, we:
(A) already have that (see link below), and
(B) are not supposed to have it.

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html/Musicians_Guide/chap-Musicians_Guide-Planet_CCRMA_at_Home.html

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
allowed.

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?


Christopher.
