One point of putting it online in a more accessible way is to encourage people to both use it *and* help maintain it. I didn’t even know this lib *existed* before you brought it up on the list. It’s a chicken & egg problem: nobody knows about it there for nobody works on it / people no about it and use it but there might be bugs. I feel like the latter is a better solution, also considering that’s how all other externals exist. If everyone knows about it and nobody uses it, well then that’s self selection.

Using pd-lib-builder, I’m 90% it can, and if it currently doesn’t, it won’t take much extra work. That was the hole point of Fred & Katja’s work: take the work out of the hassle of maintainig pd external makefiles.

From you last mail, it seemed like xeq had quite a few compelling options beyond seq.

Again, puttign it up on Github and making it easy to share the work/submit PRs allows us to collaboratively publish said fixes.
