Hi Joël,

Thanks for your (late) response.

We are working hard to get (open)motif in full shape. Our work [6] is on
Alioth. If you want to contribute, please follow my proposal as
described in my e-mail to you on 27 Dec 2012 (see below), skipping the
first item (I now own that bug).

A new motif package is already waiting in the NEW queue [7] for a month.
