Re: Fwd: [ELPA] New package: pspp-mode.el for PSPP/SPSS syntax highlighting

I've updated pspp-mode.el in the pspp repository so that it has the

Hi Stefan, hi Vasilij,
thanks for your response regarding PSPP mode for emacs in GNU Elpa. I
think we can simply copy pspp-mode.el to elpa.git and do the necessary
modifications there. The keyword list comes from the SPSS command syntax which
is also described here:
SPSS is a commercial statistics software from IBM and PSPP is a GNU free
software replacement for SPSS.
