Default New bleeding edge repository for Ubuntu Studio with ardour 2.0-ongoing svn

Hi all,

http://archive.ematech.fr is a repository with latest svn revision of
Ardour 2.0-ongoing packaged for Ubuntu Studio 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon). Both
i386 and amd64 versions of the package are available.

I'll try to package the latest svn on a daily basis.

The repository will soon host some new/custom/backported/hard-to-find
bleeding edge packages for Ubuntu Studio.

Best regards,
RaphaŽl Doursenaud

Ubuntu Studio as a project does _not_ support the use of 3rd party
repos. I'd actually prefer you advertise this as a Ubuntu repo instead.

In Gutsy Ardour is currently 2.1-1. Ubuntu Studio's point as a team was
to handle things like your repo. We intend to backport every stable
release of apps like Ardour to the prior release. We've already done
this once for Ardour and will probably have another update soon.

In the end I'd rather you had come forward to work with us as a team
then to go off by yourself.

-Cory (project lead)

It can also introduce regressions. Newer is _not_ better. Using SVN on
production machines is not a good idea. The team works the Ardour guys
to keep in line with every _stable_ release.

I'd like to see people join our team and get their work done in the
proper repos so everyone benefits.

My point exactly.

ffmpeg is very important for many programs. It never release any stable
versions. But this is situation only with ffmpeg.

"In short, if you want to work with FFmpeg, you are advised to go along
with SVN development rather than relying on formal releases. SVN
snapshots work really well 99% of the time so people are not afraid to
use them.

If you are looking for a formal release, stop now, there are none. Maybe
we will have some in the future, but don't hold your breath."

Best Regards Asmo Koskinen.

And this is exactly the problem some of us have. When setting up a
"commercial installation" we need to use something which is a "known
quantity". Version De Jour software is the last thing we want to have
around. It makes supporting the users a nightmare.

Granted, there is a difference between developmental users and
commercial users, but when some of the modules/componants that make
up the entire package are less than stable, it makes our lives
difficult.
