A few months ago, I opened a pull request against julia-emacs with a feature extension and bugfix. At the time, I made some effort to figure out who was maintaining that package. It now seems likely to me that nobody is maintaining it. This is unfortunately with the release of 1.0 now past; I’m sure there are fixes that need to be made for 0.6 → 1.0. Even worse, there’s a fix for a really very annoying bug involving string escapes in a pull request that’s been sitting for a couple months now.
So what I’m trying to do here is this:
- If a maintainer for julia-emacs exists but has just been busy for the past bit, I’d like to find out who that is so we can talk about at least getting the string-escape bug fixed.
- If that package is currently unmaintained, I’d like to see if anyone from the community will volunteer to maintain it (with permission of current owners of JuliaEditorSupport org of course).
I am willing to maintain the mode if nobody else is, however that doesn’t seem like the optimal solution given that I’m still slightly in the bash keyboard until it works phase of learning elisp.
