What about a kind of Comprehensive Emacs Archive Network in the same way
we have CTAN for TeX or CPAN for PERL ?
As root we could just have to do
emacs --cean ecb
and hop ecb would be here for example.
I'm curious of the state of Emacs installation on various operating
I'm rather pleased with Debian where a lot of Emacs modes come as
packages. The /etc/emacs/site-start.d architecture is good too.
But it is still a pity to see such a piece of software like emacs is not widely used
because it comes like a bare bone OS without any application and not full
fledged configured as default... :-(
Sure we can argue on the default but it is simpler for a high-end user to
change the default than for a plain user to change its bare bone default
I can just see this situation in my university... If the system
administrators are not emacs aware or lisp aware, it's impossible to
install in a usable way... :-(
