Yeah, I know....... I've been through many and it is not fun. The
weirdest has been all the name changes in all the pd related packages.
Some were external and then were incorporated into pd-extended and then
there were external again :-)

Yeah, sorry, I missed that they were already Fedorized... it is just
that I try to keep those packages (all the Fons* stuff) very up to date.
I'll do better checking in the future.

Yes, just today I saw them :-)

(I have been running ardour 2.8.4 for a while in-house with that
libsndfile and as jconvolver needed it I decided to just release it -
ironic timing, oh well)

Thanks for all your work...
