This is just not true. We have established a working way how contribution
can go into Pd proper with the patches tracker. If you think that there 
are contributions that stay out without a good reason we can talk about 
thm. Talking about them might even convince Miller to change his mind,
or we can find a more appealing solution together.

If you think it is too much work to get your proposals into Pd then
propose a better way (for us all, including Miller, not just for you).

Just keep in mind that one thing is to code and the other thing is to make 
reliable releases. You just can not await from Miller that he lets you do 
the fun part (the coding) and he has to care for the integration and 
testing and above that change his ideas about where he wants to go.

If you want to check out how others get their code into PD, here
is the link of the patches tracker:

(Sorry it seems that all your contributions either got deleted
or already accepted, or is it that .. no, no, I cant belive that :)
