Bug#813286: ITP: elpa-with-editor -- Use the Emacsclient as $EDITOR

Package: wnpp
Owner: Rémi Vanicat <vanicat@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : elpa-with-editor
  Version         : 2.5.0
  Upstream Author : The Magit Project Contributors
* URL or Web page : https://github.com/magit/with-editor
* License         : GPLv3+
  Description     : Use the Emacsclient as $EDITOR

This library makes it possible to reliably use the Emacsclient as the
`$EDITOR' of child processes.  It makes sure that they know how to call
home.  For remote processes a substitute is provided, which communicates
with Emacs on standard output/input instead of using a socket as the
Emacsclient does.

This Emacs extension used to be part of magit, but has been split
upstream, because it can be useful to other Emacs extension.
