I would like to contribute and maintain the xemacs package:

 * http://xemacs.org/                         (Homepage)
 * http://ftp.us.xemacs.org/ftp/pub/          (Download location) 

and also the accompanying packages xemacs-sumo/xemacs-mule-sumo:

 * http://xemacs.org/Develop/packages.html    (Homepage)
 * ftp://ftp.xemacs.org/pub/xemacs/packages/  (Download location) 

This build uses the openldap-devel package just ITP'd. So you have to 
download that one first before trying to build this beast.
************************* ATTENTION ****************************************

The xemacs-sumo* packages are about 22  MB each
    xemacs-mule-sumo*         about 4.8 MB each
    Actually it would be enough to download the xemacs-[mule]-sumo-src* 
    packages as the packages without -src are the same without the cygwin
    xemacs-21.4.14            about 15  MB both

************************* ATTENTION ****************************************

Please give it a try.

ldesc: "XEmacs is a powerful, highly customizable open source text editor and
application development system, with full GUI support.  It is protected
under the GNU Public License and related to other versions of Emacs, in
particular GNU Emacs.  Its emphasis is on modern graphical user
interface support and an open software development model, similar to
Linux.  XEmacs has an active development community numbering in the
hundreds (and thousands of active beta testers on top of this), and runs
on all versions of MS Windows, on Linux, and on nearly every other
version of Unix in existence.  Support for XEmacs has been supplied by
Sun Microsystems, University of Illinois, Lucid, ETL/Electrotechnical
Laboratory, Amdahl Corporation, BeOpen, and others, as well as the
unpaid time of a great number of individual developers."
