[erlang-questions] erlang emacs mode question

I'm glad the default mode is now getting some love. Going forward,
I think it would be best to combine efforts and avoid a separate
fork if possible, it's just easier for everyone that way. It sounds
like the main remaining difference is the skeletons? Is there any
plan to roll the erlware skeletons into the main version? And did
you also incorporate flymake support? That's really quite handy.

He has added quite a lot of new support for things like flymake and a bunch of other cool stuff which does not spring to mind right now.
