Hi all,

I wanted to write this mail before, but because of the mailing list
crash, I chose to wait a little longer in the hope that interested
people has subscribed back again.

Straight to the point: I am planning for a revision 1.2 of the dynamic
manifest extension. The changes I'm confident about would be:

* the extension URI gets finally changed to
http://lv2plug.in/ns/ext/dyn-manifest/ so that it follows the same
naming pattern as the others;
* dman:DynManifest becomes a subclass of lv2:Resource, thus
dman:optionalFeature and dman:requiredFeature are substituted with
lv2: equivalents;
* all functions will belong to the discovery category as far as
threading rules are concerned (thus removing all of that mess I wrote
down last time in this regard);
* some clarification in the header documentation (e.g., what is
subjects, what is data).

I don't think that this is going to break anything in practice, even
though technically speaking we are breaking the API (?)...

If you have any problem with it, speak now or forever hold your peace. :-)
