Thank you for packaging this gem.
I follow the development of fish rather closely and I can say that the
fish community, including the original author [1] treats this new fork
as official. Development was moved over to github as the
fish-shell-git AUR package reflects this. ridiculousfish and siteshwar
have rewritten the code: "It's all in (sane) C++. No more
string_buffer_t, array_list_t, or hash_table_t, and no more halloc!"
