Description

debathena-emacs-config ended up with a lot of cruft that seems to have been added based on the preferences of the Athena developers at the time. Much of it was removed in r23107, but there is still a fair amount left:

(setq require-final-newline t)
(setq mouse-yank-at-point t)
(blink-cursor-mode 0)

There’s also some stuff that’s no longer needed or just wrong:

(setq inhibit-local-variables t)
(setq bug-gnu-emacs "bugs@mit.edu")
(setq mail-host-address "mit.edu")
(setq tex-dvi-print-command "dvips")
(setq initial-major-mode …)
(setq initial-scratch-message …)

The auto-save changes are useful, but they should be modified to take effect only if DEBATHENA_HOME_TYPE=afs.

This can probably be closed, right? I think we resolved this in the thread "emacs cosmetic changes". Tim committed some changes, described in e-mail on 1/31/09.

These were removed:

(setq mouse-yank-at-point t)
(blink-cursor-mode 0)
(setq inhibit-local-variables t)
(setq initial-major-mode …)
(setq initial-scratch-message …)
(setq bug-gnu-emacs "bugs@…")
(setq mail-host-address "mit.edu")

The bug about "tex-dvi-print-command" was reported upstream and we'll remove our fix once it's fixed upstream.

And we agreed that there was value in keeping "require-final-newline" for now.
