Re: iCloud directory access issue on macOS Catalina

There is a useful discussion on GitHub:
https://github.com/caldwell/build-emacs/issues/84 
<https://github.com/caldwell/build-emacs/issues/84>

Parts of the discussion are specific to the “EmacsOnMacOS” method of
starting emacs but other bits are more general.

Once I’ve used the ns-open-file-using-panel method, I’ve not had
any other issues but I have not moved up to 10.15.1 yet.  I’m still
on 10.15.  I’m currently fighting with other updates and I have
a tiny internet down link but I will try and update to 10.15.1 later
today and report back.
