Fedora is lacking the extremely powerful Calc package for Emacs
which is really a must for any Emacs user. Having had to install
it manually for years I think it's time it became part of the core
The original Calc package from
ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/calc/calc-2.02f.tar.gz does not work with Emacs21
however SuSE has patches in their emacs-calc-2.02f-2.src.rpm from
Hmmm, I see: yes I know calc is nice but I'm not sure that most Emacs
users really need it.
I suggest tributing it to Fedora Extras.
Also the next version of Emacs includes calc.
