True; I didn't mean to slight other packages.

Emacs' extensible, modular nature probably means that activity on the
core development list and repository is not an accurate measure of how
the project is doing as a whole anyway.

I guess I really meant "If they switch to having a common branch history
with core Emacs, then merging and change porting gets a lot easier,
whether or not they use the same social master repository" (but that's
not what I said, so your question was quite reasonable).
