Hey list!

Looks like GNU Emacs (23.2) in Parkes has been stripped from GFDL documentation
and there are no additional packages available providing removed files. So I
decided to modify existing packages and restore missing documentation.
My approach isn't perfect (patch is ca. 14MB), but at least I can access info
files. Modified dsc and dpkg related stuff can be obtained here:
The original sources can be downloaded with apt-get source (I haven't touched
*orig.tar.gz). Does this approach meet gNewSense policies for packages? If not,
what could be done to restore documentation for Emacs in gNewSense?

Moreover I looked at 24.2 package for Debian wheezy (made by Rob Browning)
and it looks like not that hard task to port it to gNewSense (there will be
some implications probably, such as rebuilding auctex and maybe other elisp
stuff). If you are interested in having modern Emacs in base I can work on
