Well, as outlined below I am suggesting git/svn not as means for

version-independent URL that can be tracked for each of the projects.

A symlink 'zita-rev1-latest.tar.bz2' could provide the former, but one
won't be able to tell if there's any update without actually downloading
it or checking the mtime with HTTP-HEAD.

That's 3 steps to much :) Besides: The issue with download is that the
next version number is not predictable. One needs to use a web-browser.
If it was a repository-checkout it'd be a one-time setup and just
calling a single 'pull & build' script afterward.

With git it's also easy to keep more than one repo: fi. a private with
all the small changes and a public where you only push out releases.

As for the 'sudo make install' - I'm quite reluctant to run that
command. Usually a 'make' suffices for testing.
..and if I can't wait until a tool makes it into Debian I roll my own
package for the meantime which provides for clean removal later on.

The commonly used target (autotools) is "make uninstall"
(not "make remove")

The motivation is not about recovering disk-space about being able to
keep the system clean.

Some of my earlier test|development machines|chroots quickly became
messed up with different versions in /usr/lib /usr/local/lib and after a
few weeks or month there was no hope but to re-install the thing.
You may know this situation.

The overhead of rolling custom packages is small compared to
re-installing or cleaning up by hand.

aaw right.
PREFIX=$HOME/usr make install # does not work but
make PREFIX=$HOME/usr install # does

Thanks for the hint.

>> makes it easy to debianize them for local packaging; however if

I agree programmers should not be concerned about packaging. I was just
suggesting a few trivial changes that'll make live easier for PPL
packaging (either for distros or for their own benefit).

Anyway congratulations on these effects. I've only tested the reverb (I
don't [yet] have use for an autotuner) and it's brilliant.
I'm already looking forward to 'rack GUI'. Keep up the good work.

Cheers!

PS.
Do you know or have any mirrors of kokkinizita.net? It'd be a pity if
all the great stuff on there would be lost in some accident.
