Same here! It would be good to have a distribution with a maintainer
who is slightly less conservative than Miller about what goes in,
but still keep it really tight. Maybe it would also be cool to see a
"democratized" version of Pd where externals and libraries must be first
nominated and then voted in by some requisite number of positive votes.
For this to work I think we'd need to have people for each major GNU/Linux
distribution who would do the work of the actual packaging and submission,
separate to the building (My aims are totally selfish - I'd love to be
able to apt-get install this).

Even more talking with no action (sorry Roman),
