AGNULA: Call for Python Volunteers

The AGNULA ("A GNU/Linux Audio Distribution") is working on the
creation of two entirely Free Software GNU/Linux distributions for
professional audio users based upon Debian GNU/Linux and RedHat.

Unfortunately, there is one application that depends on proprietary
Java implementations for its GUI, so at the current state it would not
be possible to include that package in a fully functional way.

That application is jMax, a visual programming environment for
building interactive musical and multimedia applications and a
contribution to AGNULA by IRCAM, the music center of the Centre
Pompidou in Paris, France.

The most likely solution of this problem seems the creation of a
Python-based Free Software GUI for jMax that can replace the current
Java GUI. Unfortunately IRCAM is lacking the people that could
complete this task and cannot do it without help.

So we are now looking for volunteers who are interested in helping
create a Python GUI for this remarkable application. Volunteers can
subscribe to the mailing list at

to get in touch with the other developers working on jMax.

Although IRCAM cannot do the development all by themselves, they offer
priority support (response times within 24hrs during working days) to
everyone who'd like to help out.

If you'd like to find more information about the issues and what has
been tried to resolve them, that is available at

If you were looking for interesting audio projects to get involved in,
this might be a good opportunity - all help will be appreciated!
