Hello Helmut, thanks for the submission and sorry for the delay.
Sebastian, thanks for the review.

I've approved the project and the cron jobs should complete the setup within
another couple of hours.

Happy hacking,

a full archive of the project is necessary for review.
This tarball must contain at least the sourcecode and a verbatim copy of the license text (COPYING).

It is also recommended, but not mandatory, to include a README with contact info, maybe even a CHANGELOG and a AUTHORS. This way, you have a good template for your project right from the beginning.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: Emacs PEG
  • System Name:  emacs-peg
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later (In the long term, the library could become part of Emacs.

I'd like to use the same license as Emacs.
At the moment I'm the only copyright holder and I'd like
to keep it that way, to simplify the copyright assignments
if the library becomes ever part Emacs.)


Parsing Expression Grammars (PEG) for Emacs Lisp.
PEGs are more expressive and potentially easier to use
than regexps.  The aim of this project is to build a PEG based parsing library which works well with the rest of Emacs.

Parsing is something that Emacs should do well and
PEGs are a promising approach.  Currently we have
a prototype implementation, but we need more usage experience to make it good.  Hosting the project here
would allow us to share those experiecnes easier.
