Getting flycheck into ELPA #801
I was afraid that you'd ask. Unfortunately I'm not willing to move Flycheck into ELPA, let alone Emacs itself. I see no practical advantage in such a move that'd be worth the considerable effort and outweigh the additional maintenance burden and the potential risks, and personally I'm not willing to contribute to Emacs as a project in its current form.
Please don't take this personally; I think you're moving a lot of things into the right direction, and if it was just for you I'd instantly move Flycheck to Emacs. But there's so large a gap between Emacs and what I consider a welcoming and comfortable project that being part of Emacs is absolutely not an option for me currently.
@jwiegley I'm coming back to this issue because these days emacs-devel in all its glory has again reminded me why I refrain from contributing to Emacs: I'd have to bear with ridiculous criticism and even what you might call aggressive action against my code.
I think you're making a positive difference to Emacs, but its culture of communication and respect (or the lack thereof currently) has still a loooooooong way to go ere it becomes acceptable to me.
