Date: Tue, 04 May 2021 01:49:31 +0800 [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) In-Reply-To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> This is only tangentally related, but this feels like a relevant place to mention this and I don't think it deserves its own thread. I think it's also worth considering deleting ob-julia.el from org-contrib. Not to put to fine a point on things, but it's currently dysfunctional. Trying to execute any code in a session causes Emacs to freeze. Simply put, it was written for pre-1.0 Julia and is no longer fit for purpose. For the future, I'd think Julia actually warrants 1st class inclusion in Org, and I've instigated an effort to write an ob-julia that works well. More on this once it reaches a usable state. ----- Regarding your the list of proposed files to move to org-contrib, I concur that they fall under the bar you're setting. Just going from the fact I haven't heard of them, perhaps ob-groovy.el, ob-io.el, and ob-shen.el may be worth adding to the list? -- Timothy Bastien <email@example.com> writes: > Hi all, > > Less code is less bug and less maintainance.
