This is one of those situations where a certain amount of core
competence is required. If you are not really familiar with the concept
of building packages (especially a package as presumably large and
complicated as emacs) you might want to think twice about what you're
volunteering to do. How can you possibly maintain and support a package
if you don't have any idea about how to build it? How are you going to
deal with bug reports?
I'm *really* not trying to be mean here. I'm just trying to make sure
that you understand what you're getting into.
