I am experiencing issues with hid external loosing incoming some 
messages from input device (touchscreen).
Is there somebody maintaining this object ? where can I post issues ?

For my project (multitouch inside Puredata with native gui objects*), I 
found a workaround but I would prefer to be able to use hid object.

So, I'm experiencing issues with [hid] object for listening my
multitouchscreen device (linux).
I can confirm that some messages sent by the touchscreen are lost and
not retrieved in Puredata using this object. I can observe this when I
print in the pd-console  the output of Hid and compare it simultenaously
with the output of an utilitary listening for the same device : evtest.

Is this list the best choice for reporting this issue or may I open an
issue elsewhere ?
