writegood-mode (2.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Initial release. (Closes: #861125)
* Add 0001-Correct-Version-and-Last-Updated-date.patch
- this insures that any potential ELPA dependencies are correctly
satisfied from within Emacs. If a user downloads a MELPA package that
needs a newer version of writegood-mode than this, Emacs should
download that updated version from MELPA, and hopefully that user will
file a bug requesting that we package that new upstream version.
