You’re very welcome.

Sounds good to me.  Though, in conjunction with MELPA, you might want to
consider making them available on GNU ELPA as well.

Yeah, that’s a bit of a tough one.  There are a few ad hoc solutions
like Planet Emacsen [0] and Sacha Chua’s weekly-compiled Emacs News [1],
but there’s no ultimate silver bullet.  Sacha’s weekly Emacs News is a
manually curated list of most recent and interesting stuff from all
over, but usually doesn’t include much in the way of commentary.

Actually, looking at [2], I just discovered the emacs-tangents list [3],
available on gmane as gmane.emacs.tangents, which seems like Sacha posts
her weekly news there too.  Though it’s mostly been only Sacha posting
there for a while, it seems like anyone from the public can post there?
I think it could be a nice place for you and anyone else interested to
participate in, and to announce and discuss projects.

As for volunteering for the compilation, Sacha probably wouldn’t mind
some extra help with her weekly news either :)


I think it may be worth mentioning emacs-tangents on one of the larger
lists like emacs-devel every now and again, to help spread the word and
make sure people know about it.
