Live CVS for the EMACS_22_BASE branch. This will be used for the
next Emacs 22 release, i.e. 22.2.
emacs-cvs-22.1.50_p20070829 ("eselect emacs emacs-22-cvs"):
Snapshot of the CVS trunk, immediately before the multi-tty merge.
(Unfortunately, upstream used identical versions 22.1.50 for both
the trunk and the base branch.)
emacs-cvs-23.0.50 ("eselect emacs emacs-23"):
Live CVS for the trunk. This includes multi-tty now.
emacs-cvs-23.0.0-r7 ("eselect emacs emacs-23-unicode"):
Live CVS for the unicode-2 branch. This also includes support for
Xft font rendering (with USE=xft).
The separate ebuild for the multi-tty branch (emacs-cvs-23.0.51) has
been removed from the Emacs overlay.
