Folks, seriously… This is really really simple. The fork is the future. http://git.debian.org/?p=users/jblache/forked-daapd.git
This is the only place where active development is happening, as far as I can tell. The fork supports Front Row, smart playlists, itunes library xml, >2GB movie files, bug fixes of all stripes, and soon full control with an iPhone Remote. Oh, and did I mention active development?
Project management and resources are a wonderful thing, to be sure. But what really counts is code.
