Hi Fernando,

I know you are slowly getting around to all the PD externals [seemingly 
in alphabetical order ;-) ], but I wanted to put in a vote for PDP and 
it's cousin PiDiP. Both are video processing packages, quite similar to 
NATO for Max/MSP.

I do a lot of workshops on Linux Multimedia, and this is the one thing 
that is seriously missing from my toolkit. It is pretty straightforward 
to install the Planet on a bunch of machines, but PDP and PiDiP have 
some rather specific deps, so usually I only manage to get it on one [or 
none!] before showtime. Having Planet packages for these two with their 
deps would really make this process a lot easier for me, and a lot 
cooler for my students.


PS: upcoming workshop in Poitiers, France next week! not to pressure 
you, of course... ;-)
