I would love to see the package in  GNU ELPA but i am afraid i can not
because even if i  am the major contributor so far, i  am not the only
one (non trivial  portion of code from the maintainer  is still there)
and, moreover,  for legal reasons, i  need to assign the  copyright of
this work to my employer (that's what the legal team of the university
told me).

I could talk with  my employer about giving me the  chance to sign the
copyright assignment and with the  current maintainer to do the same,
but this would take time and honestly i do not know if i succeed.

So i prefer to decline your  invite and kind ask considering including
the package in NonGNU for the moment.
