There is a description at http://pure-data.sourceforge.net/ but it
doesn't include how to access specific branches yet. I think I should
update it with the following:

You can access the repository with: 

% cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.pure-data.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/pure-data login 

and check out the externals with 

% cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.pure-data.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/pure-data co externals

the abstractions with 

% cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.pure-data.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/pure-data co abstractions

and Pd itself with 

% cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.pure-data.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/pure-data co pure-data

To check out the current developers' branch, which is tagged with
devel_0_36, use 

% cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.pure-data.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/pure-data co pure-data -r devel_0_36

You can see the available branches in the pulldown menu on 
(or use "cvs -T ...")

I don't know which patch is in devel_0_36, I don't use jack currently,
but the source should show it.

I don't think it is, but actually I wouldn't put too much work into
it, because IIR Miller is redesigning the audio out/in system to a
more plugin oriented architecture. But only Miller could tell more
about this.
