Would it be useful to have a package meta-faq/overview, that gave a
short description of the more useful/cool packages? I'm thinking that
novices or people new to XEmacs would find it useful, especially for
customization. It would also help to emphasize one of the strengths of
XEmacs (over plain GNU Emacs): the easy, one-stop-shopping for packages.
A lot of it would cover the same ground as the sample init.el, but it
might be nice to periodically post a pointer to such a document in
And, yes, I'll volunteer to write the initial version of the
document if people think that it'll be useful.
[ I don't know if I'll have the time to maintain it in the long term,
but I can write the initial version. ]
