Sure, please go ahead.

Great -- because I know Mario shared a lot of proposals, many of which
where probably ignored or dismissed because the patches did not follow
our conventions closely enough (despite his notable efforts).

It is of foremost importance that we stick to these conventions: they
help reduce the burden of Org maintainance.  But it is a pity that we
lose contributions because contributors cannot follow them and find it
difficult to do so.

So, be free to both cooperate on making org-plot.el more useful!

Also, org-plot.el would do better with a maintainer - would you like
to step in?

Thanks,
