Hi Bogusław,

thanks for your email and explanation of the situation. I think we are
all happy to see metatype1 or its successor shaping up.

I only have one suggestion - similar to the one I often give my Japanese
colleagues - don't put the development away somewhere. Put it up
available into an open git/svn repository. You can use gitlab, github,
if you want (contact me), or whatever.

But please make the current state available. This *HELPS*!

People can look at it, contribute, suggest. You are still free to ignore
all the pull requests etc etc, but you might get valuable input.

No, I don't think there is any urgent need to fix up anything.

> And an additional question: when the next release of TeX Live is scheduled?

As usual around April 2020.

Thanks for your work and all the best
