I have Emacs 26.1 installed. It has a built-in package flymake version 0.3. Also, googling flymake gives me https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_mono/flymake.html as the second link in the search output. It looks like the main and the most official documentation of flymake on the internet. It says "This manual is for GNU Flymake (version 0.3, April 2004)".
At the same time on https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/flymake.html there is a version 1.0.8 of flymake available. It looks less like a site with official information about GNU projects, but still it's hosted on the gnu.org domain. So, my questions are:
- Why is the most official looking documentation of flymake about such an old version?
- Are these actually the same packages?
- Is the package https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/flymake.html supported by GNU or is it a third party package?
