More Neat Stuff for your Emacs

This file describes GNU Emacs programs and resources that are
maintained by other people.  Some of these may become part of the
Emacs distribution in the future.  Others we unfortunately can't
distribute, even though they are free software, because we lack legal
papers for copyright purposes.  Also included are sites where
development versions of some packages distributed with Emacs may be

Windows-32 version of Emacs, see the NTEmacs sites listed in the FAQ.

Various major packages or useful additions aren't distributed as part of

a copyright assignment to the FSF.  Some of them may be integrated in
the future.
