In the groff mission statement it says that Groff will be moving to an improved formatting algorithm. Considering that the mission statement was written in 2014; I was wondering where this was at development wise. There is nothing I've seen in the git logs that might indicate this has been worked on/completed, but there is a mailing list archive that shows some development.

Thank you very much in advance for any help


It is very slow because there is very few people involved and none of us is getting any younger. I'm probably one of the youngest official contributors to the project and I have not participated actively in maybe 12 years.

Rather than ask, it would be great if you do the legal paperwork with the FSF to become a contributor and roll up your sleeves. We'll all thank you deeply. That goes for anyone reading this answer.
