[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: alsa-utils
Version: 1.0.23-3
Priority: wishlist
Tags: patch upstream

The speaker-test manpage could be improved somewhat by helping a little bit
the user determine how to find out the devices he can test.

Based on I have make some changes to the
manpage (diff attached) to describe a little bit more how speaker-test can be
used alongside 'aplay'.

Please consider the following patch for alsa-utils-1.0.23/speaker-test/speaker-test.1

Following debian/copyright I was going to submit the bug usptream but their
BTS requires me to create a new user so, while I decide whether I want yet
another user to manage or not, I'm submitting it here.

(Because upstream recommends using the dev mailing list instead of its
crufty bug tracker, I've used an archive URL instead.)
