Re: Emacs on GNUstep (prerelease)

    This is a modification of "Emacs on Aqua" 
    (http://emacs-on-aqua.sf.net), which traces its lineage back to an 
    original port of GNU Emacs to NeXTstep by Carl Edman, which was 
    successively modified for OpenStep, Rhapsody, and OS X, and updated 
    most recently to emacs version 20.7.  Hence the 8.0 version number.

Can you find all the authors of those changes, so we could get
legal papers from them in order to install this?

    If this happens, we will eventually be interested in trying to bring 
    this port up to Emacs 21.  I have heard that there were a lot of 
    internal changes to the Emacs graphical terminal code from 20 to 21, 
    and therefore it may end up being easier to start from the current 
    Carbon-based Emacs for OS X to do this.

Since we support a greater variety of display platforms and toolkits
now, the newer code might also be easier to do this in.
