I guess this is a single elisp file?
Then you should just send it to me when ready.  I will add it and
also make an entry for it in org-modules.

There is a single elisp file, but there are also 6 AppleScripts and
Ruby script (AppleScript doesn't provide character escaping) that glue
the whole thing together with other applications.

How would you handle the installation when these scripts are in org/
contrib/mac-protocol/script or something like this.

(Sorry, accidentally moved thread off-list)

It would need to be a manual install as described in the documentation:


Problem is that there are so many possible Emacsen with emacsclient
residing in different places, that it would often be necessary for the
user to edit one of the AppleScripts to point to their copy of

I don't think the default org-mode Makefile installs stuff from the
contrib directory? Or have I missed something regarding the installation
of files in contrib?

That is correct.

So my proposal would be then that we add a whole directory for you to contrib, and in that directory you put all the necessary files and instructions for installation. Should we keep the .el file in contrib/ lisp, or would you rather have people install it only when they also dive in and install the scripts? In the latter case it might be better to have it in your own directory. If the former case, we can add it to contrib/lisp and even add an entry in org-modules, but then it will not (fully) work until the scripts have been installed.

Go ahead and send me the package to install, with full instructions, I will do what you decide is best.
