Is there some "institutional knowledge" which tells what
common changes to
look for when porting from GNU Emacs to XEmacs?
Historically, keymaps, GUI features, and extents vs. overlays were the
More recently though we've lagged behind in a lot of areas. I doubt
that vc-hg.el will be using much GNU-specific code that is not in the
VC package, though.
Note that ESR is currently completely refactoring GNU's VC package
(and I mean APIs are being added and are disappearing); people might
want to look at relevant threads on emacs-devel before putting in too
much time on this.
