I have started an organization on Github – KPMS. The goal of this organization is to adopt and protect critical plugin packages that our community depends on. I will be bothering our best and brightest to join the organization and help us accomplish this.
Backstory: this was inspired by kak-lsp (@ulis) and plug.kak (@andreyorst) maintainers having to take breaks / lessen the load on themselves. Recently, @alexherbo2 got passionate about Crystal and connect.kak and prelude.kak got orphaned. I spoke to him about forking them, and he was like “just let me transfer them to you” and he did, but it occured to me that they are probably critical workflow for far more than just me!
The priority of this organization will be to protect the root of the dependency tree for using Kakoune, the critical and often basic packages that large percentages of our community depend on.
Good idea, bad idea, packages to add, etc? Let me know how you feel!
