RE: Bits and bobs



Now that Raman has mentioned it, I think a github repository for snippets of emacspeak related code and scripts might be a good idea. I agree that due to the specialist requirements for emacspeak users, a more general emacs repository is probably not that useful. 

A github repo could also be a rich source of code/ideas for Raman. For example, if a bit of code was popular and received significant enough attention, Raman could consider adding it to the main emacspeak distro. 

This could also be a possible solution to having a 'better' default configuration. I've been running my emacs configuration out of a github repo for a while now and find it really good. Now, whenever I need to get emacs and emacspeak running on a new system, I just clone the repo into ~/.emacs.d and if I make any changes, I just make them locally and push them back up to github, later pulling them down onto other hosts as necessary.

Raman,

I'm thinking that 1 is too specific and time consuming.
2 might be useful if other people wanted to contribute.  Something like
a grab bag of bits that have been useful to emacspeak users at some
point in time all in a git repo.


3 Again, this stuff is pretty specific to emacspeak users so the generic
emacs wiki doesn't feel right.


I could just post to the list and hope that searches turn it up if
required.

Does anyone else have any stuff that would be contributable to a git
repo.


Kind  regards
Bart
