I think omnewrotate wasn't put by me anywhere, but it got there.

I always assumed you'd need a certain merit to submit, like being
somewhat stable, etc...

In fact, since omnewrotate seems to be in the repos already, I didn't
even think of submitting anylonger :)
elmdentica seems to be stabilising and already going into shr-unstable.

The most important features seem to be running fine :)
