You're welcome, but don't call it pd-devel, nor pd-dev, because both
suffixes are used in several linux distros to indicate the package holding
both the *.h and *.a files that are related to the other package that
doesn't have the suffix; so, in those distros, the "pd-devel" package
would contain the m_pd.h corresponding to the package called just "pd".

No objections, and just do it with that kind of name until a better name
is found. A more inviting name is welcome.
I think that we don't need to rename the "devel_0_38" branch right away;
it's not the right moment yet. But it should be done some day, and the new
branch shouldn't have a version number in it. If needed, we will make
subbranches of it for particular stable releases of our work.
I also think that, to promote evolution of the PureData source code base,
when Miller's 0.39 gets published, diffs between Miller's 0.38 and 0.39
should be merged to devel_0_38, and not the other way around. This is
especially important if there is more work being done on the non-Miller
side than on the Miller side.
What do you think of this?
