Vortex Music Journal | v.9 n.2, 2021 | Call for Papers
“A quarter of century of Pd: past, present and future”.
Deadline: June 1st, 2021.
Guest editor: Dr. Alexandre Torres Porres.
- Full Call: http://vortex.unespar.edu.br/call_v9_n2a.pdf
@mathr would be nice if someone submit an historical overview of all the distro/branches/fork lineage, animal, pd, pure devil, desiredata, l2-ork, pd extended, purr-data, etc.
@320x200 may require spelunking as it seems the mailing list archives on puredata.info only go back as far as 2004-03
@mathr even with archives it would require quite some work, but that could be a super interesting thing to do (CFP or not), also to use that as an opportunity to talk about the modes of governance of FLOSS, the politics of forks, etc. I always felt that the Pd community had gone through everything that can happen in a FLOSS project, it's an amazing Petri dish, and still an amazing piece of software :)
