22 weeks. What happened? :-) The following #emacs discussion
prompted me to post this followup: <yome> forcer, can I ask you
how to install Emacs in Debian?
<yome> apt-get install emacs doesn't dwim
<fledermaus> apt-get install emacs21
<yome> Ah, thanks.
<yome> Is it fairly recent?
<johnsu01> it's kind of bad that apt-get install emacs doesn't
work. What does it do?
<fledermaus> it's the last stable relase.
<dbrock> yome: apt-get install emacs-snapshot for a fairly recent
<fledermaus> johnsu01: there's no 'emacs' package, they're all
<yome> dbrock, awesome.
<bojohan> it's not really fairly recent. but that's not
