All Emacs packages known to me.

I didn't say "analyse" but "impression" ;-)

While I do intend to thoroughly analyse the data in the future, I don't
currently have the time to do that.  I am quite busy improving the
*current* licensing situation by contacting authors.  Once that is fully
on track, I can concentrate on other important things again, like
talking to you about including Magit it in Elpa for example.  And then I
also have some priorities of my own.
