this sounds really nice, but let me just add a couple of comments.

  - it took me 5 min to find the tar.bz2 download link on your website 

  - unpacking Pd-l2ork-dev-xxx.tar.bz2 via thunar puts everything into a 
`pure-data' folder, messing up my pure-data git folder (I know I could 
have used the terminal but I don't think using an archive name different 
than its main folder name is a good idea really)

  - is there an "unbloated" version of pd-l2ork? like a 
pd-vanilla-l2ork? (i.e. maybe I don't need 130Mo of libraries that I'll 
probably never use, but there I might be missing what pd-l2ork is about...)

  - why not having the pd-l2ork-dev snapshot on your github? it would 
make the install *much* simpler... right now I'm not sure what is 
`pd-l2ork/pd' github repository...

  - about L2Ork Folder Structure: do you really create 2 new user 
accounts when installing pd-l2ork? if yes, why? do users need to tweak 
those when using rt-kernel (like adding the users to audio group, or any 
other fancy things)? why not keeping it simple and use pd-l2ork with the 
current building user (like I would expect with any other application)?

sorry if this sounds picky, no offense intended (and I probably missed 
the obvious)..
once again, this project looks very nice but frankly, it's the 2nd time 
this year I wanna give pd-l2ork a shot and just gave up because all 
these points make it very hard to understand what/how to 
build/install... I wish there was just a git repo with one README.
3 lines in my terminal et voilà ;)

thanks for the enlightments =)
