Yes, I'd be happy to make the changes. What does that look like
logistically? Sending patches to this mailing list asking for review?
(Sorry, I know this must be explained somewhere but I haven't done much
research about how to contribute to Emacs yet.)

Once you have the copyright Eli will give you write access to the main
repo if you have a contribution to add.

Usually you create a feature/something branch where you add your
changes. Once the big guys (Eli, Stefan, Basil) approves/correct the
changes; you merge your branch into the master branch.

You could also send patches to the mailing list, but you'll need a
copyright to be accepted, but they can be reviewed.

Usually a completed feature requires the implementation, some lines in
the NEWS file and some lines in the manual... but don't worry the guys
will help you in the process.

In the mean time I recommend you to create an emacs fork somewhere else
to start working if you prefer (because the copyright sometimes last
for some days/weeks).

I don't have a copyright assignment yet, but some kind folks are educating
me about how to procure it over at the icomplete-vertical repo.


Good, just fill the form, you will receive an email with a document to
sign, scan and resend and in some days you will receive the copyright.

As an aside, have you tried non-fido icomplete? There is one simple change
that makes it infinitely better in my opinion: fido forces a
completion-style choice on you, icomplete gives you freedom to choose for
yourself! (I shouldn't say so because I'm the author but I love the
orderless completion-style: https://github.com/oantolin/orderless.)

Fido is actually a "simple package". It is almost a config with some
custom defaults for icomplete The idea behind fido was to create a fully
functional ido substitutor based on icomplete so Joao tried to reproduce
ido's behavior as much as possible..

Welcome on board!
