I am not sure which remarks you are referring to here.

Hi Christoph,

OTOH from my perspective python-mode.el has still some point in

I don't think anybody is saying otherwise.

Hopefully we may discuss the pro and cons to the benefit of users, which
flavour they may choose finally. As you might have been remarked, its
interwoven to an extend, you can seldom discern it clearly to the one or
other origin.

To me, it really doesn't matter where it originated from or who was
first. If it works great, great, if it does not, let's improve it. The
goal should be the best Python support for Emacs possible.

BTW I'm not blaming the GNU's side. Just wanted to point at the issue so
we might hopefully reduce the obstacles.

Here, I am also not sure what issue or obstacles you are referring to.

Assume people will rather not be inclined to send bug reports, resp. fixes, if feeling quitted with remarks telling their own baby not being well maintained. That I would call an obstacle.
