I think it's hard to avoid this situation, but you can try to start with 
an message on the LAU mailinglis.

I was one of the founders of linuxmusicians.com. We wanted to make 
GNU/Linux more accessible for newbies and thought a forum board fits 
best for it. We also made an wiki with some starters info in it.

See especially: http://wiki.linuxmusicians.com/doku.php?id=newbies

 To combine all the different information on the net and to avoid a wide 
spread of information, we also made some hyperlinks to linuxaudio.org 
and in our howto forum area we gather a lot of info which we know and 
which are elsewhere on the net:


You can also subscribe to our planet, it gives you some insight in what 
is going on in the world of linuxaudio:


So imho, the best thing you could do is joining linuxaudio.org or 
linuxmusicians.com and improve their information. And we should have a 
as good as possible working together between linuxmusicians and 
linuxaudio. Then the situation is not perfect, but pretty good imo.
