No.  I just got in touch with Robert Adrian to try and figure out how
to proceed.

What will happen to this port will in large part depend on whether or
not someone wants to maintain it.  The Emacs.app port is desirable not
only because it provides support for Mac OS X but also because it
provides support for GNUstep.

W.r.t whether we want the old Carbon port, the Carbon+Appkit port
(which I've only heard about), and/or the Emacs.app port all
together... well that makes for 4 different ports (counting the X11
version) for Mac OS X, which is a lot more than we need/want.

I think it's important for Emacs-23 to support Mac OS X about as well as
we did with Emacs-22.  So if Emacs.app is not yet ready and someone else
is willing to work on one of the Carbon ports, maybe we could keep it.
