See the end of the file for license conditions.
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
found.
The easiest way to add more features to your Emacs is to use the command
M-x list-packages. This contacts the server at <URL:http://elpa.gnu.org>,
where many Emacs Lisp packages are stored. These are distributed
separately from Emacs itself for reasons of space, etc. You can browse
the resulting *Packages* buffer to see what is available, and then
Emacs can automatically download and install the packages that you
select. See the section "Emacs Lisp Packages" in the Emacs manual
for more details.
You might also look at the Emacs web page
<URL:http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs.html>. If you use the
Windows-32 version of Emacs, see the NTEmacs sites listed in the FAQ.
Below we describe some GNU Emacs programs and resources that are
maintained by other people. Some of these may become part of the
Emacs distribution, or GNU ELPA, in the future. Others we unfortunately
can't distribute, even though they are free software, because we lack
legal papers for copyright purposes.
Please submit a bug report if you find that any of the addresses
listed here fail.
Also listed are sites where development versions of some packages
distributed with Emacs may be found.
* The `Emacs Lisp List' at
<URL:http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/user/eglen/emacs/ell.html> has pointers
to sources of a large number of packages.
It is difficult to keep this file up-to-date, and it only lists a fraction
of the Emacs modes that are available. If you are interested in
a particular feature, then after checking Emacs itself and GNU ELPA,
a web search is often the best way to find results.
* gnu.emacs.sources
* The gnu-emacs-sources mailing list
<URL:https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-emacs-sources>
which is gatewayed to the gnu.emacs.sources newsgroup (although the
connection between the two can be unreliable) is an official
place where people can post or announce their extensions to Emacs.
Packages posted to the gnu.emacs.sources newsgroup (see
etc/MAILINGLISTS) might be archived specifically (try a web search
engine) or retrievable from general Usenet archive services.

<URL:http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/user/sje30/emacs/ell.html> has pointers
