Thanks for reminding me about this. :)

BTW ctags is actually a separate upstream package.

What I'm thinking now, is for the time being at least is to ship etags with
XEmacs named as etags.xemacs, and symlink it to etags at install time if 
there is no etags installed.  Perhaps I will do the same with Emacs later.
Then alternatives could also be used to choose one or the other when both
are installed.

(moving to xemacs component)

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2002-12-23 17:04:49 UTC
xemacs-21.4.10-5 should have etags.emacs.
Please confirm.

Comment 5 Ben Woodard 2002-12-23 17:22:09 UTC
I'd say yes. Please either include etags with xemacs or make an additional
package which has etags from emacs in it and allow it to be installed seperately.

I mean it includes "/usr/bin/etags.xemacs".
