For packaging in Debian, Pd provides some ununsual challenges. This page is a place to document how best to fit Pd things into Debian Policy.

  • While .pd files are plain text, they are really like scripts most of all, and should be treated that way. That means they should go into /usr/lib/pd rather than the data dir /usr/share/pd

  • help patches are just Pd patches, which are just scripts, so it is also ok for them to be included in /usr/lib/pd.

  • Help patches are not really useful to read outside of Pd so the help patches should not go into `/usr/share/doc'

  • HTML, PDFs, .txt, and READMEs should go into /usr/share/doc like any other package
