this is an interesting pt + one that we (criticalartware) have used when we have discussed projects built in PD by nullpointer (Tom Betts) in relationship to Dan Sandin's Image Processor.
Dan Sandin released his Image Processor, a patch-programmable analog computer optimized for video processing + synthesis, freely + openly. When he developed the I.P. in 1973 and Phil Morton sought to copy the device they began to work together to create the schematic plans which they called the "Distribution Religion". the Distribution Religion was then given to the community and any [additions/modifications] were incorporated in any further releases.
criticalartware will be posting the Distribution Religion so as to make it available online to anyone interested in this system. we will also be releasing an interview w/Dan in which he describes the development of the system and his thoughts on its use, artware + open source as well as other [related/divergent] [issues/ideas].
