Subject: joe: New joe maintainers totally lost their mind.

Package: joe
Version: 3.1-0.2
Severity: wishlist


Initially, I was happy to see that people picked up the project. Now I'm
deeply disappointed. They destroyed the portability, implemented very
useless syntax hilighting, and showed that they have no clue about coding
at all by totally f**king up the tab handling, and even worse, SETTING A
2-COLUMN TAB STOP by default. As Linus once explained in the kernel hacking
docs, this is like redefining Pi to 3.14.

I'm getting kind-of tired of having to fix this on every installation, and
I certainly hope most people agree that this is stupid, to say at the
least. Can't the joe package from Debian be shipped with a sane default
conffile? I mean, I'm actually considering making the switch to vim, we
can't let that happen, right? ;-)

So, in short, can the default conffile at least use normal tabs again,
remove all the smart crap (at least until it's actually smart instead of
the Clippy-kind of smart) and restore the usual 8-column tab stop?

Maybe it'd also be a good idea to put -nobackups in by default. ;-)

With the current shipping joe versions (3.5, 3.7 also likely) the defaults
can be overidden with includes.  For example, see my ~/.jmacsrc file below.
(At the last rev, I had in set the default tabbing both before and after
including jmacsrc for some reason.)



-istep 1
-tab 8
-indentc 9

:include /etc/joe/jmacsrc

=IncSystem bold blue
=Escape black

--mid		Cursor is recentered when scrolling is necessary
-nobackups	If you don't want backup files to be created
-pg 3		No. lines to keep for PgUp/PgDn
-nonotice	Disable copyright notice
-usetabs        Use tabs to help optimize screen update.
--icase         Search is case insensitive by default.
--wrap		Search wraps
-mouse		Enable mouse support
-lmsg \i%k%T%W%I%X [%n]%*%R %M %x
-rmsg  %y %S %c,%r/%l %p%% %u Ctrl-X H for help

-istep 1
-tab 8
-indentc 9

:include /etc/joe/ftyperc
