first of all: thanks to the maintainers and all contributors for
creating such a wonderful piece of software!
Making my way through Rosegarden, there's one thing which I may have
overlooked in the manual or which is not existing yet. Before starting
to hack the code myself, I'd of course like to make sure that this is
indeed missing and noone didn't target it yet:
As I have a slightly bigger setup, I don't like to have all keyboards
being THRU'd, creating a sonic mess. Instead, using some keyboards as
master keyboards (or just recording the individual synth using its own
keyboard) I like to selectively switch on/off the THRU feature for
In Notator, I could go to the MIDI Filter page and just switch off the
corresponding messages per input. In Rosegarden, there seems to be an
all-or-nothing approach with regard to MIDI Thru -- or did I overlook
something? (While this could be tweaked on jack level, I'd like to keep
it all in place, especially since Rosegarden is providing named views,
so that I immediately know which machine is which interface/port.)
If this is a yet-missing feature, did someone tackle this so far in
their private source-code branches?

I think it would be better to move this discussion over to the devel list.
In any case, I'm not aware of anyone doing any work on anything like this, so
I don't think you'd be wasting your time to have a look at the code, and think
about where to go from there.
I think it sounds like an interesting and worthwhile idea, and I'd like to
take a deeper look at how this could work when I get a chance. I think it's
feasible, but I don't think it's going to be particularly easy either.
