Fixed, thanks. It was more complicated, because ebuild-mode is in its own repository now. --ulm (talk) 09:38, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

cairo USE flag is listed as experimental and masked...this is not true anymore. Fauli (talk) 15:02, 4 November 2020 (UTC)

Looks like this is still the case for emacs versions 25 and 26, but not for 27. This can be checked by running grep -rsin "emacs.*cairo" in gentoo.git. Still relevant for now, so we'll mark this as resolved. I'm sure Ulrich Müller (ulm) will update the docs when versions 25 and 26 are no longer relevant. =) --Maffblaster (talk) 18:48, 14 February 2022 (UTC)

Update the Emacs manual information on Resources

The link referring to GNU Emacs Manual points to the newest release, updated for Emacs 28.1 (ISBN 978-0-9831592-8-5), not being sold on print. The latest version on print is for "GNU Emacs Manual, Nineteenth edition, for Emacs version 27.2" (ISBN seems to be 978-0-9831592-8-9) — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Viniciusxp (talkcontribs) 2022-05-03T07:52:58‎

Thanks, updated.
In the upstream repo, the ISBN for the 19th edition appears to be 978-0-9831592-8-5 (also, it validates with a check digit of 5, but not with 9). I don't think that the online version has an ISBN of its own. --ulm (talk) 07:15, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
