Some other thought.
Emacs is the best!
I would like to see someone go through the list of packages and add to describe package, why someone would want to use it (what is it for?), and a pointer to the instructions on how to use it. Not just how to install it.
I wish someone would create many more emacs screencasts on how to use existing packages and have a centralized place for the list of the screencasts. I would like to see some on:
realgud - with a modern version of ruby on rails
The gutter seems like it needs some work. I haven't found a way to have all the following work together.
linum-mode (especially with larger files)
I wish I could hire someone to help me get past some of my emacs issues.
