[PD] Collaborating across systems/platforms

Well, we were unable to install the latest PD-extended on newer OSXs,  and reverting to older versions of extended, coupled with the knowledge that this is an unmaintained software caused some frustration. Consequently, every encounter with disparity between available objects and libs led to additional frustration. 
We actually didn't try all working on vanilla and adding the libs manually. I think I'm gonna follow Hans' and Patrick's suggestion, which seems like a very basic and reasonable approach.

Hello Eran,
I don't understand the problem.  What is making collaboration so difficult?

We wanted to get our ears and heads around ambisonics and experiment a little. The group consists of several musicians, mostly MAX users, working on different systems (OSXs, me on Windows - none of us is an experienced Linux user). Our aim was to be able to work collectively but also each develop personal parts of the research. Since our department computer runs on Ubuntu, and since my primary environment (and investment) is in PD, I opted for running our project in PD-extended. Our main library is the iem_ambi, but other iem stuff and additional extended libs prefigure considerably. >> >> So far this has been slightly frustrating, as we cannot find a combination of systems and PD distributions to allow all of us to work and exchange our patches freely.
