Hi ecasounders,

while having a quick glance over CCRMA I was reluctant not to have that
kind of option for gentoo.
that inspired the following idea : same concept as CCRMA ( absolute
audio / latency focus )
but gentoo linux based. some kind of slightly altered gentoo mini
distribution with modified
bootstrap / ebuild scripts which take care of a consistent audiophile
linux distribution.

would someone be interested in the idea of launching a gentoo portage
tree based linux
distro with strong audio focus ? it shouldn't be too hard to realize. we
could create the
bootstrap script, an audiosystem ebuild script according to CCRMA and
put both
on some webspace. we would have all gentoo portage benefits combined
with an already
approved bunch of applications. All freshly build from stage one. No
overhead, nothing

what do you think ?
