[PD] call for testing on the nightly builds!

It's great that you are stepping up and starting to work in the SVN.   
There is a very important rule to observe when doing this:  if you  
are going to commit a file that you are not the original creator of,  
always ask the original creator if that is ok!  This is essential to  
preventing us from stepping on each others toes.

For example, please do not commit any changes to the  
default.pdsettings and related files without asking (pd-dev is a good  
place to ask).  Those files need to stay as they are until we work  
out a better solution.
