Says the PA author.
Why are we seeing the same lame arguments again and again? Are we going
to have to retrofit support for "special" uses (special meaning the
author didn't think of them so they "must" be marginal) in PA after
several releases of complains like with the other "future"
I am not sure what you want? If people write their own .xinitrc, then
they do that because they want better control of what is started in
their X session and what is not. Now, I am not sure what you are are
asking for? Shall I find some magic way that PA is started even when
people use their own handcrafted xinitrc? You know, I am pretty sure
that people would hate me even more for that than with the current
solution. If people want the extra bit of control, than they should
have it -- and that includes the control if, when and where to start PA.
Will we have to remove PA by default from the Fedora DVD spin to
the point home and get you to care about every Fedora user?
Again, my focus is to get things working out-of-the-box for the
default cases. If you feel you need to write your own session scripts,
then you're welcome to do so -- to get PA working on such setups all you
need to do is add a "pulseaudio -D" to that script. That seems to be
a very reasonable solution for me.
