Hi Robert,

can you point me to that patch? Any other testers? Did Wes take a look
and greed to apply it?

No, I'm afraid I have sent multiple emails and have heard nothing.

I don't have a good way to recruit any other testers, unfortunately.
I'm not sure how many people actually use org-generic-export; I do
because I have wikis I need to write to and I can never remember all
those oddball wiki syntaxen.

Here's a question: what about setting up a branch on the core git repo
and letting me push that patch there?  Or you could push the patch to
the branch yourself. That way people who are interested could test, and
those who aren't interested could just ignore it.

My patch seems really quite critical for anyone who DOES want to use
org-generic-export.  The existing generic export simply does not and
CANNOT work when markup spreads across line boundaries. Generic export
processes the org-mode file line-by-line.  I fixed it to use the
preprocessing that is done by other org exporters, bringing together
multiple lines when there is markup (say italicization) that spreads
across line boundaries.

My next message will be a forwarding of a prior message containing the
patches. I will send it only to you because I don't believe the mailing
list will take it.  Interested readers can find it at:


Hi Robert,

I think the best way to proceed is that I simply apply the
patch.  This is definitely the best way to get people to test it.

I would like to ask that you - at least for a while - become
the responsible person for the generic exporter.
Wes is, I guess, too busy or not interested right now.  So if
you could please look at any additional patches for he general
exporter and make a recommendation as to wether to apply them
and what changes are necessary.

I have just applied al your 7 patches and pushed the result.

Can you please get in touch with address@hidden and see if
and what has to be done with his patch?

Thanks, in particular for your patience.

- Carsten
