My son Byrel and I have made three programs that we want to make into
packages for distributing with the XEmacs packaging system: an easy way
to change buffer colors, an implementation of icon themes, and thirdly,
a CNC major mode with a lot of code(200k?) for editing CNC G-code
machine files for different machine tools.
He'll be home from grad school for a bit next month and I am trying to
get things ready so we can make and upload the packages then.
I can find descriptions of the package system, how to use it to update
your packages etc, but I am not finding a step by step list of
directions to make some lisp code and some documentation into a package.
Is there such a list, and if not, where do I go to learn how to make a
I would appreciate any advice, or pointers to documentation that anyone
Also, is there an approval/review process for packages?
Assuming I get them made in some way or another, where is it appropriate
to upload them? I don't think I have write access to anything that I
know of and expect I won't get everything right the first time around.
