hmm, i'd rather have the "puredata" package follow the upstream package "pd" as closely as possible, without adding objects. so people using "pd-vanilla" (that is: upstream pd without any additional libraries), are 100% compatible with people using only debian's "puredata" package. i'd probably go for a "pd-plugins-misc" (name to be discussed) package that distributes a number of _trivial_ 3rd party objects ("trivial" meaning, that they don't justify separate packaging) > > Usage in a helpfile does not really warrant a Depends relation. > Recommends or Suggests are better. i couldn't have said this better. (esp. in this very case, where the help-patch is fully functional even without pd-pddp installed; having pd-pddp only allows to have a clickable link in the help-patch for more information, instead of a (harmless) error on the pd-console) mfasdr IOhannes
