No, we never had a Cocoa port of XEmacs. We had a separate, earlier Carbon
port with clearer licensing, but it was never at a very usable stage and its
author, Pitts Jarvis, died.
Yes, the carbon repo contains everything from 21.5.31, and continuing to
merge trunk changes into it is unlikely to be too onerous. From my
perspective, though, it’s ultimately not a productive use of my time to
continue with it, as there’s very little prospect of its ever being
released; I can’t see *any way* that could happen, short of Choi coming
around to our way of thinking, which seems unlikely all these years later.
If you think you have the time to merge trunk changes into the Carbon
repository, you’re welcome to the job, and I’d be happy to support you in
