Questions about emacs-snapshot (and also a small patch)

First of all, thanks a lot for emacs-snapshot Jérôme!  I'm currently
trying to get all my Emacs application packages to load here.

Now as for as the promised patch, it's as simple as this:

--- orig/patches/misc-unseparated.dpatch
+++ mod/patches/misc-unseparated.dpatch
@@ -57,1 +57,1 @@
- * Installation Changes in Emacs 21.4
+ * Installation Changes in Emacs 22.1

And here's a changelog entry (I wasn't sure whether to send this):

 emacs-snapshot (20040508-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * Initial release. This package is branched from emacs21 21.3+1-5.

By the way, is there any tla equivalent of `cvs diff'?

Oh, and I seem to have a problem with getting `load-path' to include
entries starting with `/usr/local'.  I discovered this problem when I
did the following

       ;; restore the old load-path -- including any new paths added by
       ;; files loaded in directory traversal.

in an attempt to figure out why certain packages were failing to load.
(Is there any better way to do this?)

I tried to work around the problem by adding the `/usr/local'-prefixed
load-path entries in `/etc/emacs-snapshot/site-start.el', but it turns
out that file is run AFTER the Debian package startup files, which I
suppose makes sense.

I'm not sure what I'm trying to say here, except this:  If anyone can
shed some light on some of this, please do.

I'll try to figure out whether and why Emacs is broken in CVS while I
await your response. :-)
