[bug#37070] [PATCH] Add fe

From: Nicolas Goaziou
Subject: [bug#37070] [PATCH] Add fe
Date: Sun, 18 Aug 2019 11:12:15 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/26.2 (gnu/linux)


The following patch adds fe, a tiny folding ncurse editor.

A few caveats: it builds the development version (2.0) instead of the
stable one (1.8), because the former supports UTF-8. Also, I disabled
the undocumented "sendmail" feature, which only sends a mail after
a crash.

Feedback welcome.
