This is incredibly useful.  Could you please post this on
emacs.devel so it could get included in the main calendar.el?

Thanks!

More precisely, mailto:emacs-devel <at> gnu.org

Regardless, wouldn't it be easier for calendar-goto-iso-date to simply
provide the beginning of the week as a default, just like it provides
the current year as a default:

I think your patch has its merit without calendar-goto-iso-week.
However I repeatedly have to check the date for a calendar week while
being on the phone and then I want to type (and visually parse) as
few as possible so I still think the separate function has value on
its own.  

And to be honest, I didn't even realize I was able to achieve this
goal with 'calendar-goto-iso-date' as I was never able to deduce this
from the function name without checking the actual code.

Cheers

Juha Takala's roots-mode?

I'm trying to find Juha Takala's roots-mode, a genealogical package
for emacs/xemacs mentioned here:

http://list-archive.xemacs.org/xemacs-beta/200003/msg00222.html

and here:

http://64.233.161.104/search?q=cache:mjv68qmY4ZAJ:puosu.dna.fi/~juha/+xemacs+%22roots-mode%22&hl=en

The ftp site referenced is no longer available, and Mr. Takala's work
email account is no longer active.  Did anyone happen to download
roots-mode?  Could you share it here?

Thanks-

hyperspe-addon.el 1.6 --- Add additional entries to CL HyperSpec lookup table

I released the previous version of this package as version 3.11.
At that time I was mangling with the cvs directory of my elisp
libraries.  Now I've settled with a new versioning scheme, and the new
version is 1.6.  Sorry for the confusion that might be incurred.

;;; Change Log:

;; Version 1.6 (7 Sep 2004)
;;  * Add CLHS glossary entries, e.g. "{lisp image}".

;;; Commentary:

;; You can look up symbols specified in CLHS (Common Lisp HyperSpec)
;; with hyperspec.el from within Emacs. hyperspec-addon.el adds extra
;; entries to hyperspec.el.

;; The added entries are chapter names (e.g. "[object]"), format
;; control characters (e.g. "~C: Character"), reader macro characters
;; (e.g. "#+"), loop keywords (e.g. "loop:collect"), MOP symbols
;; (e.g. "class-direct-slots"), CLHS glossary entries
;; (e.g. "{lisp image}") and so on.

You can find the latest hyperspec-addon.el at
http://homepage1.nifty.com/bmonkey/emacs/elisp/hyperspec-addon.el

Not quite on-topic, but how about a shadowing defun, defmethod, ... to put 
the docstrings into some text format (info, tex, html) and then have these 
symbols available for quick lookup (maybe one could hack Albert a bit, 
maybe it's already there, dunno).

Ok, (describe ...) may be a simple solution but I think more of static 
(ie. external to the lisp image) documentation spiced up a little with 
who-calls, who-binds, ect ... information (like eg. Albert generates 
them). Though, a reasonable class-browser in Slime together with nicer 
doc-string formatting (at least for allegro CL) might be more useful.

(But I'd do it myself--one day (it has quite low priority in my 
todo-queue).)

Thanks for sharing ideas.  I didn't know Albert, thanks for the info, I'll
take a look at it.

I think your idea of combining static information with dynamic one is
interesting.

I feel hyperspec-addon.el is a quick and dirty hack and my plan for
its future is to go with this hacky design to see how far I can go adding

folks,

this is another clean-up release, w/ an even mix of bugfixes and small
improvements.  it looks like the skills of a surgeon are not required
for clean-up, thankfully.

    - Bugfix: Functions no longer switched via `fset'

        EDB used to fset `save-some-buffers' to `db-save-some-buffers',
        storing the original version away to call later.  Even though
        this was documented, this kind of behavior is now considered a
        misfeature at best.  EDB no longer does this.  The command
        `db-save-some-buffers' is still available, but you have to
        invoke it as `M-x db-save-some-buffers', or bind a key to it.

        Likewise, `insert' was fset to `db-insert', an EDB-internal func.
