OK I should not single out Red Hat or OSDL, it just seems like we get a
lot more general gripes about ALSA regressions than we see good bug
reports. All I am saying is that maybe someone from a distro with
access to bug reports from a huge user base has some ideas for how we
could better deal with these regressions. The ALSA project does not get
many good bug reports because we are farther from the users.
