They are just in my email. The patches from the openbsd cvsweb are the
ones to make the last stable version of emacs (23.3) to work under
openbsd and make an installable package out of it.

I just like to have some stuff in the emacs repo in order to have emacs
24 eventually working "out of the box" on openbsd.

Not me, I don't have the hardware. jasper@ seems to have tested and
updated them.

There is a FSF copyright, is it enough? I didn't write this file, it
seems to come frome here
and is almost 6 years old.

It works and I too prefer this one.
