Thanks to rms for all of his work!

Emacs is still my favorite text editor when in a terminal window, which is most of the time. Maybe one day I'll really embrace vim also, but it's always been a struggle.

There was another maintainer between rms and John Wiegly: Stefan Monnier.

And, for completeness, Chong Yidong, how co-maintained together with Stefan for quite a while (and did a great job as well). I think both of them were quite a big part of the "emacs renaissance" of the last few years.


And Stefan was a great maintainer. I was sad when I heard he was stepping down, but I can't think of a replacement that would make me happier than John.

Why did the old maintainer Stefan Monnier is stepping down?
