Hi everyone,

This message is to announce two tools intended for programmers who 
prefer Emacs over Vim as a choice platform:

+ A fork of Matthew Carter's *metal-mercury-mode*, with seven added 
*M-x* commands to reach most Mercury declarations in specific window 


+ A fork of emacs 28.0 vanilla source code to add support for Mercury in 


This means that Emacs has to be rebuilt from source code, as *etags* is 
not a package but an inlined capability.

To facilitate testing, I've included a binary package for Ubuntu 20.10 
in the github release section:


Overall, these patches work fine in my ongoing development practice, 
with admitted limitations.

User feedback will be appreciated.
