Subject: Emacs starter kit
Date: Mon, 16 Jul 2012 19:17:07 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20120716134707.GA9985@panahar> (raw)

There are multiple versions of Emacs Starter Kit. The two main
versions that I currently see are one maintained by Eric Schulte
(http://eschulte.me/emacs24-starter-kit/) and the other maintained by
Phil Hagelberg (https://github.com/technomancy/emacs-starter-kit/). 

The important difference between the two is that Eric Schulte's
version is a collection of org-mode files from where the .el files are
generated. The startup options are maintained as org documents.
Package.el, and ELPA, are a part of the starter kit in this case. The
starter kit installs the packages.

In Hagelberg's version, this is inverted. Starter kit is installed by
the package manager that is now a part of Emacs (version 24). The
package manager directly installs a bunch of .el files and there are
no org files to see.

Which is the recommended way to go? What is the experience of people
on this list?

(This mail perhaps belongs to the emacs mailing list, but since at
least one of these versions is based on using org-mode to manage
emacs, people on this mailing list will perhaps have some interest in
the issue.).
