Funny. I don't see an "xemacs-binary" package in PUI.
I admit I have a personal interest: I'm getting sick of having
aptitude (one of the Debian front-ends) download and install GNU Emacs
every so often simply because I don't have a Debian package that
provides "emacsen" installed (although I have 3 or more versions of
XEmacs and one GNU Emacs available...).
I'd also like to get rid of the Debian 3rd party elisp bullshit. I
can't use Debian 3rd party packages when we don't provide them yet,
because they often auto-infect the system or don't use standard
interfaces. I imagine RPMs are just as bad. If we could create a
single Debian generic-package which would download and install an
XEmacs package, that would be too cool for words.
As for "support", yes, I'd be willing to support the generic .deb.
But there's plenty of stuff that we distribute as "contrib". If
somebody wants to supply a skeleton RPM spec that works
x-rpm-platform, I see no reason not to include it.
