Are you interested in joining the FFADO project? (short into: FFADO = 
new FreeBoB = drivers for FireWire Audio Interfaces / www.ffado.org).

We need somebody that wants to write the ALSA support for FreeBoB / 
FFADO. Currently we only support jackd directly. The main reason that 
there is no ALSA support is simply that there is nobody that is doing 
it. We have a library that exposes an API that can be used to write 
backends for audio API's, and we have the jackd backend as an example. 
It's simply a matter of putting it all together, but we need someone to 
do it.

To be frank/direct here, I think that ALSA is better 'completed' with 
FFADO support than with driver support for obsolete cards. But of course 
I'm a little biased here :).
