I don't expect the patch to be difficult. Do we care if tm
compatibility with MH-E 7 (i.e., older MH-E packages), or can I remove
MH-E support completely?
We don't care; in fact we would prefer encouraging people to migrate
to more modern MH-E, since tm is completely unsupported. Of course we
expect that you will consider any functionality that MH-E + tm
supports but MH-E 8 does not to be a serious matter, and in return
we'll do what we can to help MH-E support it. In practice, I doubt
this implies burden on either side.
For future reference, this is as far as I (as one reviewer, not as a
representative of the Board) am willing to go at this point, but I'm
being deliberately conservative. I think that deprecating obsolete
and superseded packages is going to come up more and more frequently
in the near future (AUCTeX v. old tex-mode.el is a case in point), and
we need a consistent policy. Comments and discussion are welcome.
