Almost 9 months and nothing in master. Was there anything wrong with
the code?

I think the problem is more a lack of people who "make changes in
package.el".  Although there's enough that your patch no longer applies

   error: patch failed: lisp/emacs-lisp/package.el:3262

Here is the updated patch with fixes for the comments you made.


Attachment: package.el_0426.diff
Description: Binary data

Some minor comments below.

+;; The terminating comment could be a generic string that is not in English
    (unless (search-forward (concat ";;; " file-name ".el ends here"))
      (error "Package lacks a terminating comment"))

Should that be a FIXME or TODO?

+      (message "Packages to hide: %s. Type `%s' to toggle or `%s' to customize"
                                       Missing double space

(defun package-menu--list-to-prompt (packages)
+;; The case where `package' is empty is handled in
+;; package-menu--prompt-transation-p below

(defun package-menu--prompt-transaction-p (delete install upgrade)

+   (format "%s%s%s%s"

This kind of format call is that same as concat, right?

+             (format "Packages to delete: %s. " (package-menu--list-to-prompt delete)))

+           (if (not upgrade) ""
+             (format "Packages to upgrade: %s. " (package-menu--list-to-prompt upgrade)))

Perhaps this one too? (although in this case it would mean splitting up
the brackets)

This line is getting pretty long, perhaps it should be broken up?
