... yes, it might be the lack of time that we are not even talking about
doing it in a more structured way. This is a mistake in my opinion, doing
things in a strucured way sometimes even saves you time :)
But it only works if people agree on doing it that way.

Its like, hey do you want to have 2 hours more a week for free, just say
yes and you have it.
(This is very optimistic, I a agree, structuring such an effort as writing
pd externals can backfire).

I would have built and hosted a CVS repository, but with no positive
answer from any external developer it doesn't seem to be worth the

So lets live on in the middleages of free software development :)
