This bug has been reported in the Debian BTS: http://bugs.debian.org/205908
"I would like an option to cut (== insert a new line) at a given columns
and not only to wrap the lines."
This feature exists already in nedit 5.4.
First you have to select wrap continous (in preferences), then when you 'save
as...' there is a checkbox: 'add line break where wrapped' (there a confirmation
window as it is irreversible). See http://zongo.be/pic/nedit_screenshot.png
I don't know whether the it's the best place to check, but it could be
implemented as plugin.

and the plugin itself as a tarball
This is a good start, and it would even be save to commit, but I'll tweak it
Mimetype specific line breaking can be added as well. For now, LaTeX line
endings (\\) are honored as an example

improved plugin (tar.gz)
Better line merging capabilities, taking trailing whitespace into account, and
\r\n newline handling.
Kenneth P. Turvey added in Debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/329400 that it
would be nice if the resulting wrapping could also handle things such as quotes
for mails or Usenet posts (lines starting with "> " would be wrapped with the
One generic solution to this bug is also to provide a plugin to filter data
through a command, such as "par", as noted in bug 317112.

Mass-closing of all gedit bugzilla tickets.
Special "code" to find again all those gedit bugzilla tickets that were open before the mass-closing:
By searching the above sha256sum in bugzilla, the gedit contributors can find again the tickets. We may be interested to do so when we work on a specific area of the code, to at least know the known problems and possible enhancements.
We do this mass-closing because bugzilla.gnome.org is being replaced by gitlab.gnome.org.
