Fwd: Re: emacspeak greader patch


I am forwarding this to the list for the record. Apparently the issue is
caused with the bzr version of emacs.

the problem is that file lisp/g-client/greader.el contains a spurious
"e" after the variable definition of greader-contents-rest-url, which
makes byte-compilation fail.

The problem appears only with Emacs from BZR. It wasn't noticed
with previous Emacs versions, because these used to define a global
variable "e" (for Euler's number, 2.71828...). This variable was
renamed in the BZR version in September this year.

Kind regards
