Thanks a lot!

Jörg Sommer and Guenter Milde are the admins of the pkg-jed project at
alioth.debian.org and they can give you the commit rights.  I hope they
are still subscribed to the pkg-jed-devel mailing list, so they will see
this message.

The Git repos are for other packages maintained by the Debian JED
Group.  You can see them at http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/ under

I would say you should upload the fixed package.  I was the leader of the
Debian JED Group during the time I was a DD, but I am retired now. The
other members of the group, Jörg and Günter seem to be quite inactive
these last times.  At any rate, the DJG is in their hands now, so my
suggestions can only be regarded as those from an outsider.

You can enter mail_mode by typing "M-x mail_mode" (in Emacs emulation
mode).  I use JED's mail_mode in conjunction with mutt and I have
something like this in my ~/.jedrc:

define my_mode_hook ()
  variable file;
  (file,,,) = getbuf_info ();
  if (0 == strncmp (file, "mutt-", 5)) {
    mail_mode ();
    return 1;
Mode_Hook_Pointer = &my_mode_hook;
setkey ("mail_mode", "^X^M");


Best regards,
