If there' still documentation referring to these obsolete sites,
please point the doc authors to this fact (e.g. by filing bug
reports). For 64studio, I have to admit I don't know the differences
between their distribution and plain Debian, but it should be possible
to merge their work into the official Debian archive similar to the
way it's allready done with skolelinux/debianedu packages.

I consider this kind of problematic since debian-multimedia isn't a
community project but some kind of a 'one man show' offering highly
unofficial (strictly speaking, some even undistributable) packages for
Debian. I'd love to see official solutions for most of the packages
this site offers, but that isn't likely to happen soon...

I believe we could start merging the efforts of both the
pkg-multimedia-maintainers and the debian-multimedia groups into one
bigger project, although the current scopes of both projects are
slightly different. Since this has allready been suggested today, I'd
like to hear some other (Hello, team members!) opinions about it.
