I'm not on this list, so please CC me with any replies. Thanks

I just installed Tramp 2.0.36 on Red Hat 8.0 (GNU Emacs 21.2.1) as
updated. Everything went very well; thank you all for a wonderful
product. I just used it to edit some files on a machine that I
previously couldn't use tramp on.

A few notes:

* The folks at Red Hat tend to move files around on you. RH 8.0 stores
  info in /usr/share/info/, and site-lisp at
  /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp. This means that using the same prefix
  for info and elisp doesn't work. I solved the problem by using mv to
  get the info file where I wanted it. Also, BTW, I compressed it, so
  that it is now You might want to have two .configure
  variables for pathology, one for the info directory, the other for
  the site-lisp directory, rather than the current --prefix.

* The new syntax is much better (/machine:path/to/file vs
  /[machine]/path/to/file). It is also consistent with rcp and
  scp. Thank you.

* The installation did not integrate the info page into
  /usr/share/info/dir. I guess that problem will go away when Emacs
  21.4 comes out. This is a minor issue as one can always use "info -f
  /usr/share/info/" or equivalent.

* So far I have not seen any problems saving files with RH 8.0, but I
  haven't tried saving any large files. For this purpose, what's a
  large file? Or is that issue
