To me, it's a lot better if the primary code stays in the main GNU APL repository.

Agreed. The current problem is that your git repository is a little behind the
main GNU APL repository. I made some code clean-ups already some time ago
which alse needed some small updates in your emacs subdirectory. So all that
is required is that you fetch the emacs subdiretcory back from the GNU APL repository.
Without that the files in the emacs subdirectory do not compile anymore.

Of course that could have been avoided if we had used only a sinfle repository. But that has downsides as well. I do not normally apply patches to the GNU sources without testing them. A few weeks ago I got a patch which broke the GNU APL build. Had I not tested the patch, simply appying it would have created a major problem.

Unfortunately in the emacs case (but also for sql and postgres) I cannot test the code related to it on my machine. So I depend on you testing all changes made to that code. But even if your changes successfully compile on a out-of-date version of GNU APL then your updated code breaks the build of the latest GNU APL. And that is the case regardless of we submit changes by means of patch files, or by updating from a remote repository,
or by checking code into a common directory.
