Hi Fernando, thanks for filing the bug.
I am working on it. There are some build issues. Plus, I have to port some of our patches. Hopefully this weekend...

Let me know if you want me to rework any patches. I do have the infrastructure patch which we never re-added to jack (the one that lets you reorder the ports), I'll rework that one and post it here, I have to make a special jack package anyway for some of our studios with that one in.
Sure, here is my working copy. This has all the existing patches ported and is working fine here on my box.
You can use it as a starting point. So we can include your patch(es) in the next build.
I was wondering, should I submit this update now? I think we can include your patch in a subsequent build. Let me know if you have any concerns.
Brendan, any thoughts, objections?

Port name infrastructure patch
This patch adds the option of renaming or reordering the jack ports. It is useful to, for example, set the digital i/o ports of an RME Multiface to be ports 1-8 instead ot 9-16 (thus matching an RME Digiface).

Yes, please submit whenever you want. And thanks!
I just added the infrastructure patch tweaked to patch cleanly (fuzz=0) on top of 220.127.116.11. Builds fine in my build server but I won't have a chance to actually test it at CCRMA till next week.
