If PulseAudio master was used in future versions of Ubuntu, I would feel comfortable knowing that the json c library being used will reguaruly receive upstrea maintenance, as that in turn makes it easier for Canonical to commit to supporting the package in long term releases.
The website is (sort of) up again. Although the latest release was
almost two years ago, it seems from the svn logs that there is still
development going on and that the project is very responsive to bug
reports. (I've submitted a few patches for mingw cross-compiling
myself, so let's see where that goes)
The mailing lists still don't work and the project infrastructure
could be a bit better (such as svn web access), but in general I think
it looks like a solid upstream.
