Pd-extended would be much more work to maintain outside of the pure- 
data repository.  It is a distro of pd, it is not something  
different.  I don't think that a distro should be thought of  
something separate.  The reason why Pd-extended uses branches is for  
making releases, just like asterisk or subversion itself.

As for the log issue with dd, it seems that svn has made dd  
separate... and just to be clear, I started this discussion to make  
more effective use of the tools (CVS).  I often had to wade thru lots  
of dd log messages.  Since dd is a fork, I thought it made sense to  
have separate logs.  It seems svn has done that for us. :)
