Customize Emacs or port your Xemacs customization code to it

Postby marja » Feb 9th, '16, 09:35

As all Xemacs users will have noticed, it has become unusable. https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11254

It has been dead upstream since many years and we cannot fix it, so it will be obsoleted by Emacs.

To help you port your customization code from Xemacs to Emacs (or to help customize Emacs if you didn't do that before), Juergen Harms wrote a nice wiki page: https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Guide_to_customizing_Emacs

I am aware that Xemacs is in Cauldron - can it be removed from list of packages included in the .isos?

do you need a bug report / request for this?

regards

You're right
Code: Select all
[marja@cldrn_64 ~]$ grep xemacs /RedHD2/QA/QA/Mageia-6-dev1-*/*.idx
/RedHD2/QA/QA/Mageia-6-dev1-i586-DVD/Mageia-6-dev1-i586-DVD.idx:Mageia-6-dev1-i586 xemacs-21.4.22 (i586)
/RedHD2/QA/QA/Mageia-6-dev1-i586-DVD/Mageia-6-dev1-i586-DVD.idx:Mageia-6-dev1-i586 xemacs-extras-21.4.22 (i586)
/RedHD2/QA/QA/Mageia-6-dev1-x86_64-DVD/Mageia-6-dev1-x86_64-DVD.idx:Mageia-6-dev1-x86_64 xemacs-21.4.22 (x86_64)
/RedHD2/QA/QA/Mageia-6-dev1-x86_64-DVD/Mageia-6-dev1-x86_64-DVD.idx:Mageia-6-dev1-x86_64 xemacs-extras-21.4.22 (x86_64)
[marja@cldrn_64 ~]$


:-(

For some reason I don't manage to find where it comes from.

You can add this to the bug 11254, obsoleting xemacs should help to remove it from the isos

I wish I could entirely remove this post, instead of just deleting that fake question!
