New Life for Shane Celis’ Emacsy?

We told you about the Kickstarter for Emacsy, which would bring an Emacs way of doing things to other software applications, launched by Shane Celis, a student at the University of Vermont. While the project failed to achieve funding, Celis updated backers afterward saying that during the course of the funding campaign, Richard Stallman, father of the free software movement, not only remarked that Emacsy “looks useful,” but asked if Shane would consider making Emacsy an official GNU project.

Even without having reached funding, it sounds like there’s a way forward for Shane’s project. We wish him luck!
