I have attempted to convince Reef-Pi people to add your gamma dimming to their program.. hope you don't mind..

There’s no real magic there. More LED driving software/firmware should be accounting for gamma. So I hope they pick up the feature. But that’s me being a color management nerd.

They should just be careful about what units they use for config inputs. I found it’s easier to adjust raw “lumens” when dealing with plants/algae to dial it in. Even though you then want to interpolate along the gamma curve while dimming. Reef tanks I expect are similar.

Hmm, now I wonder about offering a setting to tweak color balance of a multi-channel light, and have it applied automatically for you to the lighting. I.e: you just ask for 50% and it figures out how much to skew the RGB channels to keep color temp close to what you want. Probably overkill, probably a pain to configure.

But maybe more valuable is being able to at least do a basic version of it. My local changes supports naming channels in the hw config file now that the schedule is its own file... maybe make it possible to merge multiple hw channels into a single software one.
