Re: [ITP] xemacs: A powerful, highly customizable open source text editor and application development system

Why not? We have other X11 packages which could utilize this. Plus,
Harold's on a mission to knock the number of X11 packages sky-high, so
undoubtly we'll see many more applications which will utilize this.
XEmacs speaks the following two dragndrop dialects: CDE, and Offix. Not
the opendesktop one, nor the KDE one, nor the Gnome one. So, of
Harold's new packages, which ones support CDE or Offix style dragndrop?
(Now, I believe the GTK-XEmacs build sprechen se Gnome/opendesktop
dragndrop -- but GTK-XEmacs isn't under discussion. (At least, not
until we get a glib, atk, pango, and gtk package.)
We can make an xemacs-extra package, but there's still the conflict
with the ctags package.
Are the source code differences mutually exclusive or is one a subset of
the other. Perhaps merging the changes into the other packages might be
the way to go? AFAIK, ctags and friends don't depend on any
emacs-specific share libs, right?
I dunno. The point is, that on Mandrake at least, these conflicting
files were moved into a separate package so that one could install both
Emacs / XEmacs / Ctags / etc. That is, if there are conflicts, minimize
and segregate them.

I think I go for an LDAP package...
Not necessarily, those aren't your only options. If he's using it
statically, then all that is really needed is to provide the source in
the xemacs tarball and have the build script build it. There is no need
to ITP the whole thing if all that you want is the client library part.
This is done by a couple of other packages which use external static libs.
Sure. Personally, I view that as even MORE work than just ITP'ing LDAP.
