Re: [PATCH] ob-java

This happened because the new ob-java wasn't based on the old ob-java. I wrote ob-haxe based on ob-C and ob-python and then derived ob-java from ob-haxe.  I went back and forth about who should be the author of ob-haxe. I considered listing the authors of ob-C and ob-python, but I thought it wouldn't make sense since they may not have heard of haxe, and they may not like my code or want their names on it. I didn't really think about the author of the new ob-java, since it came directly from ob-haxe.

But I want to follow your conventions. I will put the authors of ob-C and ob-python (Eric Schulte and Dan Davison) as the authors of ob-java and ob-haxe. The implementations are nearly the same. it wouldn't make sense for them to have different authors.

Hi Ian,

feel free to install the patch when you think it's ready.

One minor nitpick:

-;; Author: Eric Schulte
-;; Maintainer: Ian Martins <ianxm@jhu.edu>
+;; Author: Ian Martins <ianxm@jhu.edu>

I suggest you leave Eric Schulte as the author while adding yourself
as the maintainer, even if the "change" is a big rewrite.
