Well, introducing new packages can really trigger a lot of things that
we don't have support for. So that is good to do!

Well, I'm just suggesting upgrading as a tool to drive the
development. Each problem should be solved appropriately. Some times a
rewrite is the right thing and sometimes adding functionality to the
core is needed.
while going on certainly is honorable, it might pay to analyze the reasons of the relative
fall-behind last years.
Why GNU Emacs got that many contributions and XEmacs didn't - at least in relation?
AFAIU its a technical question basically.
It's not about contributions, but about getting rid...
