Michael> XEmacs currently has vc-cc packaged; I believe that

Michael> Do you know of anybody who's already proposed to do this

APA> Michael, we face some temporary complications with CVS access
APA> at the moment. Our repository is in flux.
APA> At the same time our XEmacs packages manager,
APA> youngs(a)xemacs.org, is computer-less for a while.
APA> Stephen, could you please check with Steve whether a
APA> packages\xemacs-packages\clearcase directory would be the
APA> right place for this new package.
APA> I think we should avoid confusing names with vc-cc.
APA> I can bootstrap the new package next week.
APA> Michael, after that you could send any patches to
APA> xemacs-patches(a)xemacs.org and I would commit them for now.
are you still interested in maintaining a clearcase package for
which is currently at
(defconst clearcase-version-stamp "ClearCase-version: </main/188>")
works fine for me in (emacs-version)
"XEmacs 21.4 (patch 6) \"Common Lisp (candidate 1)\" [Lucid]
(i586-pc-win32) of Thu Nov 29 2001 on D5DC120J"
which is a native Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]
It has my only remaining gripe resolved in that it honors
Steve, would xemacs-packages/clearcase/ be the right home for this
I guess we should steer clear of vc-cc.el since that package is still
around and even received patches recently.
Steve, I could give it a shot bootstraping this package unless you
want to do it?
APA> You could however start immediately to make patches against Kevin's
APA> latest clearcase.el and mark XEmacs changes clearly as such with:
APA> ;; XEmacs change: ...
APA> Kevin might be able to accept such patches as long as they don't break
APA> anything and look right.
APA> It should make many people happy to have clearcase.el available as an
APA> XEmacs package.
APA> Let's wait for Kevin's and Stephen's input now.
APA> Best regards,
Michael> (I'm copying Adrian and Rod on this, since they are
Michael> mentioned as clearcase.el contributors wrt. XEmacs
