No, it's the Linux audio community.

Correct, it's outdated too, but you can assume that manpower will be
focused to edit this Wiki and not the tons of other outdated Wikis.

The maintainers have got outstanding abilities, but at the moment I
can't recommend to use it, since they need to go the Ubuntu way, that
means it's harder to set up a DAW, than it is for Debian, e.g. because
it ships with PulseAudio. It's not specific for audio usage, no
real-time capable kernel etc.. Perhaps AV Linux is a good choice if
people prefer 32-bit architecture and if people are comfortable using a
RPM based distro, Planet CCRMA might be a good choice.
