If I recall correctly:


– this 2020 pull request (with patches from FreeBSD) was made, upstream, with the intention of FreeBSD subsequently benefiting from the merge.

True?

If so: are we (downstream) still awaiting the benefits?

In particular:

  • the hot unplug one is not yet committed to ports, but the author told me to include it here

Please, can anyone answer the upstream/downstream question?



A few weeks ago I experimented with forced deletion of audio/pulseaudio. Too much broke as a result, so I reinstalled …

… the interest here is PulseAudio (not alternatives), and making it better. Thanks.
