What's the purpose of providing a diff if everyone who wants the feature can also get devel-pd with very little additional effort ?
The reason for providing patches/diffs was discussed a lot on pd~convention: It makes it much easier to get bugfixes etc. into the most used version of Pd, that is MSP Pd - both for Miller and for users who for whatever reason don't want to or can switch to devel_039, DesireData, PureEvil or so.
I have a few questions for everybody.
What's my incentive to serve those users?
What were the assumptions underlying the discussion at PureData Convention? Are those assumptions valid?
Why shouldn't more users use devel_0_39 ?
Why should I make efforts to contribute to a branch I don't plan to continue to use, and that I wish gets replaced by devel_0_39 in day-to-day use?
Many people here make contributions to aspects of Pd that they never use. That part of what makes it an great community. I have contributed a little to the devel branch and I have _never_ used it. But I figured it was easy enough for me to do, and it'd take someone else much longer, so I went ahead and did it.
But I can definitely tell you now that any interest I might have had in helping the devel/inpure/whatever branch is rapidly evaporating. You guys need to come down off your high horses, you are all using Miller's Pd. Most of the code in that branch was still written by Miller.
But your changes for uninitialized values sound like a simple bugfix, where a patch would be possible and a nice thing to do.
That's cool, it means that you just found one nice thing that you could do for Miller and normal users who have a compiler but don't want to check out devel_0_39 and enjoy applying diffs that Miller hasn't applied himself.
