A special quick edition of my “%” Emacs development blog series: We now have some magic numbers!!!1!
Today, we dipped below 2219, which is a magical number, because:
The most open bugs we had was 4437, and (/ 4437.0 2) => 2218.5.
50% down from the top! Let the celebrations start! Carnivals in the streets! Crowds going mad!
We’ve basically shaved a decade’s worth of bugs off, and we’re down to 2012 levels. Or 2011, if you wanna disregard that bump…
Oh, and another magical number:
2222 — should have waited until May 22nd, I guess. More twos is more magical, right? Right.
This concludes this session on Numerology in Computing.

Lars: thankyouthankyouthankyou. I run half my life out of Emacs, and without your efforts, that half of my life would be on fire.
Thank you for your service Lars!
Thanks for all your efforts! These numbers look amazing!
Unsung hero. Thank you, and Godspeed.
