I’ll definitely include the license file/s etc… when i can confirm it works. basically if it was not working or ONLY worked on my machine(s) i need others to test that. This is really only for testing.
I will code a patch that prints license info to the window too. I tried to do that with all the LADSPA creators there were a ton of them and whiel MANY come from Steve Harris other ones came from CDP etc…
So i want to be clear my research and my focus is/has been on the maintenance and revival of this code for users and the developers i have contacted for example Kelly Fitz who created loris – a spectral morphing library that used csound has granted me access to maintining his code FOR the csound community. Now what does that mean? It means WORK. It means hiring grad students or assigning grad students to re-concile the code with csound, the current python and the code that Kelly Has released. So i MAKE SURE that IF i am going to spend MY RESEARCH DOLLARS on something that they know about it not for hurt boo-boo feelings or trying to claim their work as my own. I have been participating in open source development since the mid 1990s-- for example the Gendy~ work recently and just a few weeks ago with Olivier Belanger and Cecilia but to give you an idea this is what Dr. Fitz had to say about HIS code and my intentions

Hi Patrick, thanks for contacting me, and for your interest in Loris.
I have been out of academia for almost a dozen years, and in that time, I have not used Csound at all. The decision to stop supporting Csound, to the extent that there was a decision at all, simply came down to there being no one in the Csound community willing and available to maintain the modules. The API was forever changing, and at some point long ago the modules I had worked on stopped working. Loris is no longer related in any way (unfortunately) to my day job, so I have almost no time to develop or support it any longer. I would be glad to see someone familiar with (and willing to keep up with) the Csound API update the Loris modules, but I cannot offer much assistance, nor give a credible estimate of the effort that would be involved to bring them up to date. You can, of course, clone the repository and inspect the module code yourself, but I have no bandwidth (and of course, no students) to dedicate to the effort.
Thanks for your interest, and best wishes,
