New from emacs-snapshot


I've updated emacs-snapshot and integrated remarks from testers (thanks Kai,
Sébastien and all other I forgot).

emacs-snapshot is now maintained in a Arch archive, by the means of
the bazaar implementation, available in Debian (personal note: I would
have prefered a less painful SCM but Rob and I decided to use it a
long time ago. I hope to switch to a better one --like Bazaar-NG--in
the long run, or use Darcs in the short run which works fine despite
its well-known flaws). The archive is located at:


I wrote a build-emacs-snapshot.sh script, available at
http://people.debian.org/~jerome/ which automatically builds Debian
packages from a distribution tarball extracted with 'make-dist' from a
CVS checkout and the Debian packaging from the Arch archive.

You will need to apply the attached patch to make-dist (patch sent upstream
but the FSF is moving this week-end) until it gets integrated.

>From now on, I think daily snapshot can be easily generated. However,
I have no doubt that bootstrap will often failed since people almost
never attempt to bootstrap from the distribution tarball (the reason
for my make-dist patch).

An open discussion is whether/how to make it available in Debian
(unstable, experimental, stagging area, ...). Please comment :-)

Please report any problem in this mailing-list.



PS: It could be nice to have the same kind of infrastructure for XEmacs.
