Review Request: emacs-flim - Basic library for handling email messages for Emacs
Last modified: 2013-02-19 05:43:36 EST
FLIM is a library to provide basic features about message representation and
encoding for Emacs.
This is a reworking of the original flim package, complying with the new Emacs packaging guidelines. Also, xemacs support has been dropped since emacs-apel, which this depends on, no longer supports it either.
*** Bug 658338 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Taking this rename review.
Sorry for the long delay, finally had a chance to look at the package.
I think xemacs-w3m still requires flim-xemacs so
it would be better to keep xemacs support and rename
this package to emacs-common-flim and let xemacs-flim
obsolete and provide flim-xemacs.
Been busy; apologies. Will try and take a look in the next couple of days.
Not sure how xemacs support would work, if flim requires apel and apel no longer supports xemacs -- I'll have to give this some testing.

xemacs-packages-extra provides apel-xemacs at least.
Since flim is only needed by emacs-w3m, I also asked Tagoh-san
if he is interested in owning emacs-common-flim.

That's true. this is why emacs-apel doesn't provide a subpackage for xemacs to avoid the conflict. anyway, that change has been mode some years ago though.

I don't mind either. I'm not keen to keep the owner of emacs-w3m either, because I rarely use it these days.
Ping? Any progress here? Or we can close this review?
