I spent time last night and this morning reading my .emacs file. This might seem an odd exercise, but I use emacs for all my writing, but aside from stealing a bunch of code from other people years ago I've never really spent any time customizing it, which is silly, given that customization is the whole point of emacs. So after poking around in an old emacs book, I customized (fill-individual-paragraphs! cool!)lampadas
I've been a bit of a slacker in dealing with the gnome docs organization problem, which over-arches a number of our other issues, so I started installing Lampadas last night (which is to say I started installing the depencies). Some good overview docs from dmerrill and David and Alexander Bartolich have written a useful guide to the dragons lurking in the installation process. I quote:Installation of lampadas is a bloody mess.
Part of my curiosity stems from my need to manage all the docs I write on my own computer, and I figure learning how Lampadas addresses those issues will give me a good foothold in understanding how it will work with our gnome docs.
