[gst-devel] JACK and GStreamer, from the horse's mouth

So, in a couple of weeks, I will be at the OSDL DAM-3 meeting to discuss
multi-media again. As the (primary) author of JACK and Ardour, and as
recent Linux jukebox user, I've been looking around at the current state
of things. I've read the mailing lists, and I do not understand why
GStreamer does not have a functional, maintained JACK sink (source too,
perhaps). JACK is the simplest API around, so unless GStreamer is still
hampered by a push model - I was under the impression that you guys
switched to a pull model sometime not so long ago - I don't understand
why its been so hard to get a JACK sink to stick around. Would anyone
care to enlighten me?
