Do you know? > The org 'policy' is to support the current released Emacs version and the two previous versions. Current released version is 27.2, so need to support 26.* and 25.*. We recently dropped the requirement to support 24.x. Once Emacs 28 is released, support for 25.x can be dropped. WRT making this part of org-mode core, I'm not in favour. This is no reflection on the package, which I think is a great addition to the org ecosystem. My preference would be for this package to be an add-on package in either ELPA or non-GNU ELPA. My main reason for this is because I think we should be striving to make the core org packages as small and easily maintained as possible, containing the core functionality used by everyone. While this package has some very useful functionality, I feel it is functionality which will be used by a subset of users or by others only occasionally. If, at a later date, it turns out a majority of users use this package, we can review and if necessary/appropriate, bring the package into org core (assuming copyright is handed over to FSF).
