I can't begin to praise the devs on ardour enough. After years of following the project from far, I installed it tonight on OSX. I'm keen to work with ardour the software and hopefully the wider dev community in the future.
Would a telephone system the devs can use for conference calling and dialing one another (a la skype) be of use? Just putting it out there for your thoughts.
My background is in open source software (opencsta.org & omnium.net.au) and was reading through your development page and came up with the idea.
