General eMail handlingI would suggest to use a unique naming scheme for email addresses of people who want or may want to actively support matroska/musepack/related work development.Email addresses are changing from time to time, old email addresses becomeinvaldi or - more worse - will not be read anymore.Idea is that a person XXX has a simple to built email address in the followingmanner: XXX @ STANDARDDOMAINA person with a nickname / forum name "XXX YYY" has the email address XXX . YYY @ STANDARDDOMAINProposals for such standard domains:- hydrogenaudio.org- matroska.org
One person donated via bank transfer with this text:"DONATION BY [...] ON THE CONDITION THATFRANK GETS LINUX COMPATIBLEHARDWARE NO ATI, NO CREATIVE, ETC"
You need to know that we already settled on an ATI card, which has good Linux support by the way. ATI provide their own Linux drivers.
Get the man a cheap dualhead Matrox card Linux drivers for the G450 are quite mature and stable. Of course 3D performance is horrid, but that probably doesn't matter to Frank. At least image quality is excellent.
i believe it is spase who owns musepack.org...now a dead siterip
The normal copy right laws do not give you right to copy the code without an explicit license, so it cannot be either used or viewed by us.Frank can give you permission to redistribute the code in unmodified form if he prefers to keep it close.
We should start another discussion regarding the reorganization of the Musepack project. This would include finding maintainers for PlugIns, getting an overlook over the current codebase (the situation is really confusing right now) and a general future outlook.
In short : First of all, we should make a decision about where the official musepack 'communication' should be taking place. Although i love HA.org, i vote for the lists, speaking from experience. Frank's voice should have a lot of weight here IMO .....

Frank's voice should have a lot of weight here IMO .....In other words: "Thanks for bringing Frank back with the donations from HA members! But now: Bye bye!" Well, seriously speaking, we gotta admit the fact that Frank doesn't like webboards so the most logical thing is that official communication takes place on mailing lists which are already there.
Though it would be good if there was a web-interface for the mailing list for web-users.m2f just went public beta and it should work with phpBB. Also CM2F is similar mailing list - web -interface for phpBB.It would leave HA pretty much out of the MPC scene, but for the format it would be best if there's a concentraded place which the developer and masses like (both mailing list and web-interface).
I hope sometime in the future someone has time to port m2f for IPB so that HA can have the interface to the mailing list too. Logically thinking it would be the best to close HA MPC sections and forward all MPC traffic to the phpBB-forum on CoreCodec server as long as there's no IPB-mailing list interface. That way the MPC discussion would remain very concentraded to one place, and MPC users (and Frank) wouldn't need to read messages in several places.

... dont swob things here ! User interaction should be via the webboard, only developer/contributor internal communication should be directed to the ML !
