The discussion about the Pd-extended reanimation left one question open:
What exactly is it, that people miss in vanilla compared to extended?
Is it the inclusion of a whole lot of externals and abstractions in
Debian/Ubuntu/Mint users already have an easy access to all those,
because many of them have been packaged.
A possible implementation to bring the same convenience to the other
platforms would be a kind of a repository in Pd itself. A lot of
softwares do that. Think of: browser add-ons, eclipse packages, atom
modules, the node.js package manager or Processing.org libraries.
In Pd this may even be a GUI-Plugin that allows for searching in meta
information added to the Pd externals/abstractions on sourceforge. And
a click to download and install them.
If you open a patch with an unknown object in it, the plugin could
offer you to search for it in the repository.
Just an idea.
