I did that initially, and then I stopped to do it that way. It just
didn't work for me. I spent way too much time on BZ that way, And
spending time on BZ is not what I am being primarily payed for. (And
it's also not where the fun is in my eyes...)

<offtopic>Also, since our BZ is so embarassingly slow the time spent on BZ
is twenty times what it could be. Why, oh, why is our BZ just so f**g
slow compared to all other BZs? Even SUSE's BZ is a million times
faster than ours.</offtopic>

I am happy for every help! Feel free to merge, close or comment on all
BZ bug reports if it seems sensible to you. It would certainly help me
to release new PA versions more quickly!

You can always, ping me on #pulseaudio on freenode. Ping me multiple
times if I don't react.
