Thank you. Somme comments follow.

This is not the official release number. This should be "0.1", with an
appropriate revision number since you're not using the release tag. Also
there should be a comment explaining why you're not using that release
tag (almost 10 years old here).

See, for example, emacs-dhall-mode package.

The commit should be bound to a variable at the top of the package

Nitpick: Please move the hash on the same line as base32

-> Emacs windows

I suggest to use non-imperative wording, e.g., This package allows
moving... It always prefers…

I also suggest to remove the reference to (C-S-<dir> ...) since it
belongs to the documentation of the package, not to its description.

Could you send an updated patch?
