Count me in, I was planning something similar too, since my interest is 
also mainly in the Audio/Video area, that's also why I registered as a 
packager in this area.

I guess once the build system is up and running and we are all set up as 
packagers then we can talk about the details, but I don't think it 
should be here on the general dev ML, the ML would quickly get 
polluted with too many parallel discussions if every sub-group did all 
their discussion on the same ML. We could use a dedicated ML (either 
an official one or else I can set one up quickly on my server) or even
a simple forum thread on the future Mageia forum.

Don't get demotivated by the nay-sayers that commented on your initial 
post, the argument that there are too many tasks is silly, as long as 
there is a maintainer for a task package (or any package) it should be 
included in the repos (if that won't be the case then Mageia wouldn't be 
the kind of open community distro it set out to be).
