Description of problem:
The Fedora>Graphics menu is well stocked with Graphics applications. 
I have been following some Linux Journal articles. Both
http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=7274 and
http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=7606 are example URLs. 
Both of these articles point to some very nice sound utilities.  The
gnome-sound-recorder as provided in the gnome-media rpm is ok for some
quick recordings but the application is not intended for editing
sound.  Just like the Fedora>Graphics menu is well stocked would you
please stock the Fedora>Sound and Video with some of the sound
applications listed in these URLs?  Note the
http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=7274 article contains a
nice table of the editing applications. MiXViews may be the only
application in the bunch with licensing problems.

One of the articles mentioned this page

It would be nice to include some of the educational tools like
rhythmlab and some sort of tuner like Xtune or gtune.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on Fedora>Sound & Video menu

Actual Results:  I found seven sound applications.  One was the
essential volume control.  The rest were geared toward CD rippers and

Expected Results:  A full menu like the graphics menu.  Even KWave is
missing in the sound section.

A reasonable request, but none of these programs are ideal for various
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-02 17:05:04 EST
These are probably initially all good ideas for Fedora Extras:


I'm sure some are already there.
