Free (Debian Multimedia member),
Could you comment on this? I think it's the best when Ardour will hit
Lenny. Second option is as a Lenny backport.
Btw. why doesn't Ardour from unstable hit testing? This is normal for
packages in Sid after some time right? Now there is no Ardour in stable
Thanks in advance,
