Hi Emacs,while the release of Emacs 25 is pending and not everyone is involved fixing remaining bugs, it might be time to reflect what to do afterward.
What about establishing a structured TODO - structured according to importance and difficulty?
While Emacs is my editor of choice, it has some serious --and mostly unnecessary-- flaws.
To make clear, that's not just a personal view, please consider the withdraw of advanced and promising theorem prover Isabelle/HOL, which doesn't longer support Emacs, while relying on it before. BTW that withdraw was in time, before John took over and AFAIU caused by a policy, which hopefully is abandoned now. "policy" means here: how to design code and how to deal with bugs.
The most simple but far reaching bug IMO is the inconsistence of beginning-of-defun introduced by open-paren-in-column-0-is-defun-start and related. It not only makes Emacs Lisp editing somehow non-professional, it also affects python.el and seems spread its inconsistency beyond, making people believe such things are normal.
