  1. Bonjour Tom,
    Je t’√©cris en fran√ßais car je crois savoir que tu es fran√ßais.
    Avant toutes choses …
    Merci pour ce travail que tu fournis depuis toutes ces ann√©es …
    Je voulais savoir si je suis autorisé à éditer le fichier : sqf.sublime-completions
    je souhaite ajouter des commandes perso et ajouter les commands de A3 qui ne sont pas référencé.
    Si besoin je suis d’accord de fournir mon fichier apr√®s modification si je suis autoris√© √† le faire.
    Je suis aussi disponible si y’a besoin de petites mains pour X ou Y raisons.
    Bonne continuation.

  2. It has been several years since anything has been released. If possible to continue on your work by the Arma community could you release your source code on github/git please? Thank you for your time and hard work on this in the past, hoping to maybe continue this on and bring it up to date with Arma in 2020.
