No more xemacs overlay

With all of the XEmacs packages up-to-date again in Gentoo CVS, I found less and less need to keep my original SVN overlay online. It used to located at moving-innovations.com/svn/xemacs, but no more. I took it offline today after cleaning out the remainder of the overlay and discovering that there wasn’t anything of interest there anymore. So, if you’ve been using it:it’s gone. Everything that was there is now in Gentoo CVS, except for the patches to move all XEmacs support and lisp files from /usr/lib to /usr/share. I hope to revisit that move some time in the future.

The only other thing that I planned for the repository is to create an ebuild for the XEmacs 21.5.x beta versions. However, that alone really doesn’t warrant an overlay, so I guess we’ll just package.mask that until it is fully ready.

Finally, this may be the right time to point to some documentation on XEmacs on Gentoo. It’s still a work-in-progress, but I hope to document both the development process and tools, and peculiarities relevant to XEmacs users on Gentoo. Please let me know if you have questions or would like to see something particular documented.
