Cool, I've actually paid less attention to the deb process on OBS knowing
that it's already worked out and up-to-date somewhere else. I'll take a
look at how I can reuse those packages.
OBS doesn't need signed packages, an I haven't tried if it accepts packages
signed by someone else.

Hm, I don't have this script yet in ~auto-build/ ... It seems it doesn't
work if I just download it to any place along with its whole folder, but I
cannot run it from the main run-automated-builder script either, because
rsync cannot reach the server.

Well, the deb thing is stuck at this line now:

The file is pulled from
(It has a packages/linux_make/debian folder but still no good.)
Is there a .tar.gz for pd-extended online which is suitable for deb
packaging and I could link to it? I don't want to reinvent the wheel...
BTW, Is there a Pd-0.42.5-extended-dev.deb (or alike) that I could study or
use for parts?

The rpm is losing it here:

As far as I understood lame-devel is not available in Fedora. How do I
