Re: emacspeak and w3



Yes, ELPA is part of emacs 24. The 'default' GNU repository is fairly small as
it can only contain packages which are GPL'd and for which the authors have
assigned copyright etc over to the FSF etc (just like contributed code in
emacs). However, it is trivial to add additional repositories, though I'm not
sure how package conflicts are handled in this case i.e. two repositories have
the same package). 

I find it a very useful way to try out new packages, though I still prefer to
build my key packages, such as w3m, w3, VM and mew from sources.
