So apparently this repository is pretty popular now. I tend to use
this repository as a dump for experimental code -- it can completely
change without notice at any time, totally ruining your emacs init
process. It's just support for my
.emacs, it's not something I
intended for other people to fork and use. Instead of nopasting
snippets when someone asks on IRC, I can just link them here.
If there's something you'd like to rely on for daily use, just send me an email (via github or real email; doesn't matter to me) saying you'd like to use it. Then I can split it out into its own project, worrying about things like documentation, non-conflicting namespaces, etc. This is not worth the effort if nobody but me uses something, but if other people are going to use the code, we should work to make it as compatable and conventional as possible
You also get the added benefit of being able to include the new project as a submodule in your own configuration, like I do with eproject, eslide, slime, etc. And of course, if you find and fix a bug, you can patch the project, and everyone else using the module gets the fix too when they update their repository. Much better than cutting-and-pasting your favorite parts and having to fix some bug that 18 other people already did.
With that in mind, everything in the root directory is stock code from
somewhere else (either as a submodule, or cut-n-pasted from some place
that doesn't provide a repository; eww), and everything in
new code I've written. Customizations and extra features for existing
modes tend to be named
foo-extras.el. Other things are named
however I feel like :)
Share, enjoy, and send me email and patches!
