The last few weeks have seen a lot of developments for GNU Emacs on Gentoo and luckily XEmacs is also reaping some of the benefits. Emacs and XEmacs now both depend on a new eselect module which finally resolves some file collision bugs between Emacs and XEmacs. The eselect module currently doesn’t support XEmacs very well but this is something that will only be noticed by someone installing both GNU Emacs and XEmacs.
In addition to these changes there is now also a joint project for GNU Emacs and XEmacs as a sub-project from the Lisp project. Hopefully this will make things a bit easier to organize and further the cooperation between the GNU Emacs and XEmacs herds. Since this project space is now available I’ve also moved the XEmacs on Gentoo information page there from my dev space. Hopefully I’ll be able to implement some of the Future Plans mentioned there shortly.
