Ok, I think we should release soon.  It would probably be prudent if
Reiner was able to prebuild a snapshot XEmacs package so that people
could test it out in advance.

Other stuff that remains to be done is applying the GNU FDL to the
documentation.  Weirdly enough, all the existing fdl.texi templates
still have the old FSF address.  I am currently communicating with RMS
in order to get that sorted out.

I am also trying to get a hang about how to deal with GNU maintainer
guidelines and DFSG.  I'll have to decide this more or less on my own
according to how I interpret the guidelines, and it may or may not
result in the AUCTeX manuals ending up in Debian nonfree instead of
main, depending on whether the Debian maintainers choose to judge the
standard GNU front and back cover texts (short blurbs) as constituting
non-freedom.  Personally, I consider the few words nothing worth of
calling nonfree (since they basically affect only mass printed copies,
something which is not even possible with the "free" labelled GPL, and
contain basically pretty much nothing that would not also be in the
copyright notice and/or license text, which is unremovable by law,

But it is pretty clear that we can't expect to get away with fewer
problems than other GNU projects.

Anything else?
