Hi Gregg,

I have wip-elisp rebased all the way up to main as of a few days ago (e60469c8b6936575c079faaffa40a340e1d49f3c) plus two changes from Ricardo. It's available here:


There is one test failure in "make check" on test-out-of-memory. I haven't investigated it yet but I get the same failure on main. If
that's not an expected failure, it might be a problem with my

There is also an emacs repo here:

which uses the 3.0-based wip-elisp. It builds and runs but segfaults easily. I've started rebasing it on a more current emacs. Those changes aren't published yet.

I also had he same experience. Guile Emacs would segfault very quickly. That’s why I started a rebase on top of the nearest Emacs release, which is 25.2. I had to abandon the rebase, because after about 45 commits it became too difficult for me to understand what exactly I had to do to resolve all these conflicts. There are about 112 commits left to apply.

If you think you could benefit from the work I already did I could upload the full git repo as it is, mid-rebase and all.

I haven't been able to get the guile-emacs package in guix working. The build gets stuck at collecting/processing OKURI-NASI entries after a few hours. For comparison, the 3.0-based guile-emacs builds in about 20 minutes on my machine. If anyone has that running, it would
be nice to have a comparison of the build/run speed.

I only got the 2.x-based Guile Emacs to build. Haven’t tried with 3.x because I had not dared rebase beyond 2.2.
