Paul (author of Ardour) doesn't want packaged Ardour3 until it's out of beta,
but once it's out of beta it would be interesting and doable. I highly doubt
any successfully built packages would meet the Fedora packaging guidelines
(Ardour3 has quite specific requirements, and Paul prefers the in-package
versions of certain libraries be used instead off the distribution's versions),
and thus would be a candidate for a third-party repo. And, of course, this
isn't Fedora, but packages in the CentOS core do follow the guidelines (pretty
much, there are exceptions, obviously) that were in effect for the
corresponding Fedora version (F12/13 in the case of EL6, of course).
Kdenlive similarly has very specific requirements, and they change very
I am in a position to be able to test such packaging, too.
