#emacs  what happens to a package when it joined the mothership?

once a package goes into GNU emacs, as a property of FSF, the package becomes moribund.

all innovation happens outside of it, and lots of re-inventing the wheel, but usually better wheel.

well, it's not exactly dead, but will be revived and improved after half a decade, when there are several better wheels out there.

Maybe you should join the core emacs team?
