I recently cloned the emacs repository of jessica hamrick. https://github.com/jhamrick/emacs. She already moved to emacs 24 while the current version on PAW is still 23. The two versions differ in a major shift in how themes are loaded. Thus I get an error when using a 24 repository on a 23 emacs version. While I am sure to fix this I just wonder if it is worth the effort, since the shift to 24 is only a matter of time. Do you have plans to upgrade the version in the nearer time? Also I would like to know how version upgrades are handled. Some libraries are a bit old. Is there a possibility to install newer versions on ones own risk? What is your policy?
