Well, the first step is that the set of changes needs to be looked at carefully and considered for merging into the RetroPie branch of EmulationStation.
Previously (when the main branch of EmulationStation was still under active development), this PR would have gone to Aloshi, who would be able to judge it on its merits and see how well it fits with the rest of the code, as well as any future plans he might have.
Nowadays, ES development is most likely to come from ‘third parties’ like me. It must be difficult for the RetroPie team to judge the code without a spending considerable amount of time on it. So I’m not expecting an answer anytime soon.
In any case, it might be outside the scope / too large for what the RetroPie team is willing to take on and support, especially taking into account futures where RetroPie uses a different Frontend altogether. We’ll see.
I wish these types of discussions would take place more in the open though. We all have a stake here.
