 Though Emacs project (subproject of Lisp) has no official leader, I
speak up as senior dev. :)

I cannot tell much, but graaff seems to have closed most of the severe
bugs and worked on having more/bette eclasses for the app-xemacs

GNU Emacs:
 * We took care of nearly all incoming bugs and punched ones
still sitting around
 * Started keywording all packages with stable x86 and amd64 (majority
is done)
 * Split up of eselect-ctags and eselect-emacs so them Vim wheenies
stop crying (just after Portage was able to handle needed upgrade path
 * Files which enable additional packages from app-emacs category in
Emacs are now stored in /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-gentoo.d/, with
full backwards compatability (fully transparent for non-aware users).
emacs-updater from eselec-emacs package can check if you still have
site files in the old location.
 * Support for echangelog (by C-c C-a) in app-emacs/gentoo-syntax
 * Man, we got so many test plans for our packages that arch teams
should be able to stabilise our packages in the blink of an eye.
 * Fixed some more packages that were working but not in a good shape
regarding coding practice (Emacs and Ebuild)

> What are we going to do:

 * Improve the tree further, though we are nearly done
 * Bring some really handy packages into the tree from our overlay
 * Improve gentoo-syntax to use the whole Gentoo toolchain for Ebuild
