Yes, as I said (or at least that was what I wanted to say).

I think the problem with the pd community is that everyone just says how 
he/she would like to have the distribution and is always complaining - 
but actually only Hans is doing the main work (with some very small 
contribution as also by myself).

I personally think that the pd-extended project is one of the most 
important things in the pd-community, if not the most important and I 
cannot understand why people are not able to work with each other and 
not always against each other. Especially developers are only 
complaining ...

It is not enough to always say "I want the build system like this" or "I 
don't like the current philosophy" - we heard this now many many times 
on the list and of course some of the criticism is also valid - there 
really need to be also contributions from other people to get this 
project working ...


PS: I was really fascinated how cooperation can work in other open 
source communities, but here (in PD world) I simply don't see this and I 
don't understand why.
