I think it may be useful to add links to these tarballs to the wiki page
BzrForEmacsDevs.  Hunting for information in the mailing list archives
is "mostly ok", but it's tedious and error prone.

FWIW, I am now uploading a tarball of my /bzr/emacs trunk copy at:


The upload will take more than an hour (my DSL connection at home is
really crappy at uploading stuff), but its size and checksum for anyone
who wants to verify it are:

    address@hidden:/bzr$ ls -l emacs*gz
    -rw-rw-r--  1 keramida  wheel  - 311658949 Feb  3 04:40 emacs-trunk.tar.gz

    address@hidden:/bzr$ md5 *gz ; sha256 *gz
    MD5 (emacs-trunk.tar.gz) = 0216237b204006a30e9a443fa0988c31
    SHA256 (emacs-trunk.tar.gz) = 

This copy of trunk was updated earlier today (less than an hour ago),
and it includes a toplevel 'emacs/' directory initialiazed with:

    bzr init-repo --2a emacs/

and a local 'trunk/' branch initialized with --no-tree that I use to
keep a "clean" local mirror of the Emacs trunk.

I cannot promise to keep the tarball at members.hellug.gr updated *very*
often, but it's probably worth pointing at this and other places from
BzrForEmacsDevs at least for people who cannot pull the _full_ branch
over bzr+http.
