this is an interesting pt + one that we (criticalartware) have used 
when we have discussed projects built in PD by nullpointer (Tom 
Betts) in relationship to Dan Sandin's Image Processor.
Dan Sandin released his Image Processor, a patch-programmable analog 
computer optimized for video processing + synthesis, freely + openly. 
When he developed the I.P. in 1973 and Phil Morton sought to copy the 
device they began to work together to create the schematic plans 
which they called the "Distribution Religion". the Distribution 
Religion was then given to the community and any 
[additions/modifications] were incorporated in any further releases.
criticalartware will be posting the Distribution Religion so as to 
make it available online to anyone interested in this system. we will 
also be releasing an interview w/Dan in which he describes the 
development of the system and his thoughts on its use, artware + open 
source as well as other [related/divergent] [issues/ideas].
