AGNULA's Development

Our development efforts focus on several areas or - as well call it - subprojects. We mainly use a software package called GForge as our main development place of work.

By registering an account on our GForge, you will be able to browse the various subprojects, issue bug reports, requests for improvements, and anything else that comes to your mind.

Besides, we have a list of Requests for Help - quite self-explanatory, isn't it? - so, if you feel like hacking a bit, you're welcome!

Generally speaking, all discussions on development issues are conducted on our [email protected] mailing list, which you can subscribe to here or sending an e-mail to [email protected] with the word subscribe in the Subject of your e-mail.

Right now, we are focusing on the following projects:

  • AGNULA/DeMuDi: the Debian Multimedia Distribution is a flavour of the Debian GNU/Linux Operating System, with specific audio packages, installation, auto-configuration and management procedures added by us. To have more information about this project, please refer to these pages. The AGNULA partner who is in charge of developing AGNULA/DeMuDi is Centro Tempo Reale.
  • AGNULA/RehMuDi: the Red Hat Multimedia Distribution is a Red Hat Linux based distribution, with specific audio packages, installation, auto-configuration and management procedures added by us. The AGNULA partner who is in charge of developing AGNULA/RehMuDi is Red Hat France.
  • AGNULA Documentation: one of the biggest obstables to a widespread usage of Free Software (we sometimes use the term «Libre Software» to avoid the ambiguity inherent in the english word «Free») is the lack of documentation. For this reason, AGNULA focuses on two projects related to documentation: a series of tutorial being written by Dave Phillips with the help of the AGNULA partners and contributions from all of our users; and the Audio/Video Documentation Project (still in the early planning stages) whose goal is to collect and organize all libre documentation on working with audio/video on GNU/Linux systems.
  • AGNULA Music Database: this is an online database of "libre music/video", i.e. pieces of audio/video work distributed under a license which allows redistribution, modification and usage. We are still discussing the possibilities of the system, with specific reference to how to commercially use the works that will be distributed through this system. If you are interested in this project, please join our [email protected] mailing list and let us know your views on the matter.
  • AGNULA Streaming Server: strictly connected to the above project, we are planning to create a streaming server (also known as "Internet Radio") which will transmit only libre music. We are currently evaluating, together with IRCAM (which is a member of the AGNULA consortium) the technical details of the project, as well as the legal issues related to the distribution of libre music. If you are interested in helping with the technical details of the project, please join our [email protected] mailing list; if you are more interested in the legal issues and want to share some of your view points with us, please join our [email protected] mailing list and let us know what you think about this.
  • Partners' Software: one of the aims of the AGNULA project is to help the research and development currently going on in several key institutions which focus on audio/video, sound, synthesis and analysis issues. You can have a look at the list of the AGNULA partners to see what's going on in our research labs.
