POVray is a scripting language used to define 3-dimensional graphics.
POVray mode for emacs provides text coloring, automatic indenting, etc. when developing a script on emacs.
For the most part, this works very well despite the fact that the last change to the mode was 5 years ago. POVray itself doesn't change very much either. But it does change. Specifically, a new keyword elseif has been added, and I would like this mode to incorporate this change.
I looked at the above linked GitHub page, and could not find a place to comment, or even a way to message the author. So maybe I am asking my question in the wrong place, and I just need a clue about GitHub.
I looked at the pov-mode.el file, to see if I could do this myself. My idea was to add in an #elseif directive, possibly within a parenthesized or clause, everywhere I saw the #else directive. But I am not familiar with Lisp and I am not sure whether the desired consequences would result. I would probably also have to search through instances of the #if directive as well.
Advice on how to either contact the author (melmothx on GitHub) or learn more about Lisp would be welcome.
