*** Tramp is now part of the distribution.
This package is similar to Ange-FTP: it allows you to edit remote
files. But whereas Ange-FTP uses FTP to access the remote host,
Tramp uses a shell connection. The shell connection is always used
for filename completion and directory listings and suchlike, but for
the actual file transfer, you can choose between the so-called
`inline' methods (which transfer the files through the shell
connection using base64 or uu encoding) and the `out-of-band' methods
(which invoke an external copying program such as `rcp' or `scp' or
`rsync' to do the copying).
Shell connections can be acquired via `rsh', `ssh', `telnet' and also
`su' and `sudo'.
** Indentation of simple and extended loop forms has been added to the
cl-indent package. The new user options
