No Peter hasn't taken the package down. All the packages are linked,
you can't just take one down. A clean SoaS install without it means
that the other packages that depend on it haven't setup the
dependencies properly. You had to manually install csound-python the
last clean install you did as well.

portaudio isn't used in Fedora, do you mean pulseaudio?

Exactly the same spot as we were before.

No update. I don't have time to work on it at the moment but patches
are always welcome.
