My understanding is that we are waiting on two things:

1. Consensus from the community.  I would characterize the feedback on
the mailing list as limited in quantity but strongly positive [1-4] and
I think that most/all of the wishes for post-receive-email features that
were originally omitted from git-multimail have been implemented in the
current version.  Some of the mailing list feedback was about earlier
versions.  Do you want people to give feedback specifically about the
current version?

2. For me to figure out what part of the git-multimail history I think
should be included in the Git project, do any necessary repository
rewriting, and submit a pull request to you.  The fact that I haven't
gotten to this is due to the fact that I've been busy getting git-imerge
[5] ready to present at GitMerge.
