[alsa-devel] Shipping UCM configuration files in upstream alsa-lib

It seems that there are no UCM configuration files in the alsa-lib
tarball (or am I not looking hard enough?). Has it been decided that
alsa-lib should not ship with UCM configuration files, or is it just
that nobody has so far submitted such files for inclusion? I'm about to
start learning about UCM by writing some configuration files for the
Nokia N900, and I'd like to get those files eventually to upstream.

I think it makes sense to ship the UCM files in upstream, because that
way when you port a new Linux distribution on a piece of hardware,
there's a better chance for audio to "just work". And even if Mer (which
I'm using) will be the only distribution that is going to be interested
in the UCM files for N900, Mer can avoid maintaining any patches on top
of alsa-lib if everything is in upstream.
