customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor.
You may encounter bugs in this release. If you do, please report
them; your bug reports are valuable contributions to the FSF, since
they allow us to notice and fix problems on machines we don't have, or
in code we don't use often. See the file BUGS for more information on
how to report bugs.
The file INSTALL in this directory says how to build and install GNU
Emacs on various systems, once you have unpacked or checked out the
entire Emacs file tree.

The file INSTALL in this directory says how to bring up GNU Emacs on

Reports of bugs in Emacs should be sent to the mailing list
bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org. See the "Bugs" section of the Emacs
manual for more information on how to report bugs. (The file `BUGS'
in this directory explains how you can find and read that section
using the Info files that come with Emacs.) See `etc/MAILINGLISTS'
for more information on mailing lists relating to GNU packages.

VMS info:
Emacs 19.x and above do not compile out of the box on OpenVMS.
Richard Levitte <levitte@lp.se> is distributing and maintaining a
version of Emacs (currently based on version 19.28, but soon moving to
19.34 and then 20.1) that compiles and works on OpenVMS 5.5 and above
on both VAX and Alpha architectures. For more information see
http://www.lp.se/gnu-vms/software/released1/emacs.html
There is also some effort going on with Emacs 21. Source code is
available at ftp://ftp.nvg.ntnu.no/pub/vms/emacs/. Look for most
recent stuff with ls -lta.
It is a working "development" version (editing and much more works).
More developers are needed; contact roart@nvg.ntnu.no.
