Here you will find packages and ebuilds developed in the Emacs Project, which contains GNU Emacs, XEmacs, the corresponding Elisp packages, and eclasses. Being work-in-progress, their functionality cannot be guaranteed.

How to fetch the overlay

Get Layman and Git, configure it:

root #emerge --ask app-portage/layman dev-vcs/git

Adding the Emacs overlay is then as easy as

root #layman -a emacs

You can then regularly update to the latest reviewed revision:

root #layman -s emacs

How to report bugs
