I don't have anything to say since I agree with peter's ideia and i
think it would be very nice if the development of Emacs would be more
spread, if we could browse the cvs, if we could see the bugs posted
maybe we could fix it. Anyway. Give a big help to Emacs. Maybe Emacs
does not need it anymore, but like he said, it's up to you. That's just
an ideia.
