> Authors of Emacs packages often derive from an alias of a mode instead
> of the mode directly. This is especially the case when deriving from
> 'prog-mode' as it is relatively new. Unfortunately, using
> 'derived-mode-p' to check if some mode is derived from an alias of
> 'prog-mode' does not work as expected. The bug is that
> 'provided-mode-derived-p' should not only return non-nil when MODE is
> one of MODES, but also when MODE is an alias of one of MODES.
> * lisp/subr.el (provided-mode-derived-p):
> Return non-nil when MODE is an alias of any of MODES (Bug#32795).
> * test/lisp/subr-tests.el: Add tests for the above.
In the future please either format your patches with "git
format-patch" or make sure the first line of the commit log message is
a single sentence followed by an empty line (this is explained in
CONTRIBUTE), to make the patch application easier.
Also, you don't seem to have a copyright assignment on file, and this
contribution comes close to exhausting the amount of changes we can
accept without such an assignment. So I urge you to start your legal
paperwork rolling, to allow us to accept more contributions from you.
If you are interested, I will send you the assignment form off-list.
