-lowlatency kernel for Ubuntu Studio

Just a quick note to mention that I will be hosting a session tomorrow, Wednesday November 2nd at 10:00 a.m. EST, for getting the -lowlatency kernel into the Ubuntu repositories.

This is currently important for Ubuntu Studio because this would allow us to ship a tuned kernel for audio recording as the default kernel.

This is a great time for those who are interested to get involved because we will certainly need community support for a variety of tasks to get this done.  These tasks will be defined and/or refined during the session and available afterwards in the blueprint in the Whiteboard section [1].

Everyone can attend the session via IRC [2] and can view the preliminary action plan and watch the changes live in the etherpad [3].

 This is a great opportunity for the Ubuntu Studio community and your involvement can directly affect the result.
