Happened tonight on #pulseaudio:
00:41 < Q-FUNK> guys, it appears that Skype might be willing
to become good audiozens and stop accessing
00:41 < Q-FUNK> however, they would need help to understand
what's required for stripping ALSA and OSS
support out of Skype and replacing it with
native PulseAudio support.
00:41 < Q-FUNK> any volunteer I could put them in touch with?
<snip content="[no volunteers, some discussion about this
list requiring subscription]" />
01:30 < Q-FUNK> well, anyhow, if anybody is willing to post
the above to the list on my behalf, I can
put whoever is willing to explain to them
how it's done in touch with my insider.
01:31 < Q-FUNK> there was initial resistance, followed by
attempts to dodge the issue by pointing me
to various workarounds, and only now,
tonight, admittance that porting to PA might
be the way to go.
01:32 < Q-FUNK> we need to follow-up now, while they're
still convinced that it's worth doing.
Interested people should contact Martin-Éric Racine. Irc is
preferred, he's always on Freenode and IRCnet with nick
