| By this email i assume you responsible for XEmacs packages releases?
Yes, but it's not only me.
| That illusion has been partly dispelled after looking at some of the
| timestamps and versions of some of the packages in the standard release.
| For example MEW. The version in the XEmacs release is over 2 years old?!
| Is this because there is no active maintainer? or stability issues?
The former. There's no maintainer specified and nobody of the XEmacs
Development Team seems to be needing MEW that damn much to keep it in
sync with upstream.
| Also, how do you request packages becoming part of the XEmacs package list?
The best way is to post a message to xemacs-design at xemacs.org which
describes the package and its value for the community. Along with the
package should come a package maintainer, just to prevent it from
getting stale after a first import.
