Emacs prefers /usr/share/info/emacs to /usr/share/info.

0002-Run-debian-startup-and-set-debian-emacs-flavor.patch Run debian-startup and set debian-emacs-flavor

0003-Remove-files-that-appear-to-be-incompatible-with-the.patch Remove files that appear to be incompatible with the DFSG
Files that appear to be incompatible with the DFSG have been removed.

A number of files have been removed from this package because their
licenses are not compatible with the Debian Free Software Guidelines
(DFSG), or because it wasn't completely clear that their licenses are

In particular, all of the files which are covered under the GFDL and
have invariant sections have been removed in accordance with this
General Resolution:

The files that have been removed, but still appear to be
distributable, have been moved to packages in Debian's non-free

0006-Don-t-try-to-build-src-macuvs.h-via-IVD_Sequences.tx.patch Don't try to build src/macuvs.h (via IVD_Sequences.txt)
These are OS X specific, and were removed for now, due to uncertainty
over the licensing.

0007-Kill-gpg-agent-in-package-test.el-to-avoid-a-race.patch Kill gpg agent in package-test.el to avoid a race
package-test.el should no longer fail during clean up.

* Previously a delete-directories call raced with the gpg agent's own
cleanup process (presumably triggered by the first deletion of one of
the agent's sockets). As a result, it looks like the agent might
delete one of its sockets after delete-directories had decided to
delete the socket, but before it made the attempt, causing an

* To fix the problem, explicitly ask gpg-connect-agent to kill the agent
before attempting to delete the gnupg home directory, and then delete
via "rm -rf" to ignore any vanishing files.
