[ Paraphrase of my email about starting the GNOME Sound Improvement Project. ]

I've been tossing around an idea that I had: produce, one of the things that is
lacking in Open Source Software, good quality sounds. I am a live sound/recording
engineer. With that said is anyone working on this? I would like to contribute
and or start this but... I don't own enough equipment, and I would need some
funding, for equipment, to start the project.


I privately emailed a developer, and he suggested I contact a few places for
funding, about a week ago. What timing. :)

I'm sure we can collaborate, if you are interested.
What I was thinking was along the lines of first getting out the "core" sounds,
then sounds for apps like evolution/nautilus, and finally other apps and games.

THEN, produce sound packs or themes for GNOME or any other open source project.
There are many OSS projects out there that need good sounds/efx.
