No problem. Although I was the one collecting the pieces, it was
rather a collective work. Thanks to everyone who is involved. We need
to do some testing now, and clean up the glitches before F-14.

I thought about doing that once. Jack1's and jack2's source codes are
distributed on the same website , We know that JACK stands for
Jack-Audio-Connection-Kit. So there shouldn't be any confusion.
Sadly, there is no unique agreement on the package name across
distribution. As far as I know, we were the only distro distributing
jack1 under the full name "jack-audio-connection-kit". There is also a
very different project called jack , although we don't have it on
Fedora. This adds more to the subtlety as Mandriva distributes this
jack as just "jack".
What do other maintainers think?
"jack-audio-connection-kit" is the official name of the project and it
has been the suggested name for packages - I could try to dig through my
very old email and find an email from Paul on the subject. I have used
that name since 2001 or so (version 0.37) - I may have been one of the
first if not the first to package Jack as part of Planet CCRMA.
The jack1 tarball is actually named "jack-audio-connection-kit", not
"jack". As mentioned above jack2 is a different code base that
implements the same "official" jack API and was developed independently.
Its developer chose to name the tarball jack (I don't know why, we could
Who knows what the future could bring. I certainly don't know :-)
When/if jack2 becomes the official jack maybe the tarball will change to
jack-audio-connection-kit. Of jack1 could evolve, supplant the current
jack2 as the next version, and the tarball would still be
jack-audio-connection-kit. I would keep the current name.
