 * Need to test building Lintian against emacs26

This page tracks work/issues on getting emacs 26 into Buster

  • Mailutils. Should we build-depend on mailutils?
  • Package compatibility. We need to check that not too many packages are broken
    • by emacs 26, and file appropriate bugs.

Known Issues

  • org-iswitchb seems to have gone away with the upgrade to 26.1. Not completely sure how that happened. Maybe I was using the built org only for that one function. org-switchb seems an acceptable substitute. The renaming is a minor annoyance for compatibility DavidBremner

  • FTBFS bugs

  • Need to test building Lintian against emacs26
  • The dependency bounds are too loose; you can install 'emacs' 26.1 and 'emacs-nox' 25.2 right now; rlb to fix
