The info should also be available from the emacs-diff and commit
lists, I think.


suggests about 60 changes occurred in the time between the last backup
and the crash. So if necessary we could just put all the missing
changes back in by hand.

But I guess we should see what the situation is when savannah comes
back. This will be a general problem, and hopefully the savannah
people will have suggestions about how best to recover.

Don't know. I think it would be very advisable to refrain from making
commits until this is sorted out.
