I am pleased to announce that I have released Git-Modes on NonGNU Elpa as well as on Melpa. Git-Modes provides three simple major modes for editing Git configuration files.
Previously these modes were available from Melpa as three separate
gitignore-mode. These packages have been removed and you should
remove them locally too and then install
git-modes, but make sure
that it is already available before you do. That can take a few
The motivation for merging the packages into just one is that while
many users may only regularly edit
.git/config and maybe
.gitignore, it is not such a bad thing if a major mode is ready to
go when they first open
To celebrate the occation, I have bumped the minor version to four, hurray, though there aren’t really any other noteworth changes. What else is there to say?
Well, this seem like a good time to thank all of the original authors of these modes for their work. So thanks you!
While working adding this package to NonGNU Elpa, I have synchronized
the [Non]GNU Elpa and
elpa-admin documentation, which have diverged
a bit over time, and intend to help with removing duplication and
updating stale information. The documentation is actually quite good
if you read it carefully. If you plan to add a package to [Non]GNU
Elpa, then I recommend you look at the README of the
package; that is the most up-to-date and complete incarnation. I’ve
also found and fixed a few minor issues in
elpa-admin and am going
to submit that tomorrow or so.
That’s it for the night. Happy hacking.
