Re: Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) introduces the rootless security model



Hi,

I understood.
In my opinion, for novice users who does not realize the place they are
writing into, rootless will be useful feature to avoid the system messed
up.
But it may prevent them from using Emacspeak at all.
How about documenting this case at the place the instruction for OS X resides?
