thanks Artur.

Excellent point about the setq. I have made the change. The emacsWiki article for making packages said that step one (in bold) was to make an account on Savannah and sign the copyright transfer information. However, it did not have any apparently obvious information about how to do this. Thank you so much for providing that information. The email has been sent.

Try reevaluating the defvar with C-M-x

It's unusual for people to edit package files directly. They usually add configurations to their init files. In this case, if your package is loaded after their init file your setq will override their setq.

You need to sign the copyright assignment, and then I can push it for you (you're not the first to ask, the readme really should say this).

To get started on that, follow these instructions:


Please email the following information to address@hidden, and we
will send you the assignment form for your past and future changes.

Please use your full legal name (in ASCII characters) as the subject
line of the message.

[What is the name of the program or package you're contributing to?]

[Did you copy any files or text written by someone else in these changes?
Even if that material is free software, we need to know about it.]

[Do you have an employer who might have a basis to claim to own
your changes?  Do you attend a school which might make such a claim?]

[For the copyright registration, what country are you a citizen of?]

[What year were you born?]

[Please write your email address here.]

[Please write your postal address here.]

[Which files have you changed so far, and which new files have you written
