OK.

So, maybe the pd-zexy README should be removed? I'm not a pd expert, but if I install some extensions, I expect to be able to use them right away, without having to invoke pd with special args. I'm getting the impression that we are not living up to that expectation. -- Saludos, Felipe Sateler _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
