I'm working on getting more pd libraries in the repository, those should
happen eventually.

I have not packaged supercollider yet. It's in my list (together with
other stuff like simsan, for example - and before that openmusic). 

I don't know where to point you to "learn packaging", it took me a long
time to (I think) start getting them right. Nor particularly difficult,
of course. Just lots of details.

Yup. Alsa is part of the Planet CCRMA repository so you don't have to
rebuild that. You will need to download the kernel-source package to
rebuild the nvidia drivers for the new kernel...
