Just a quick follow-up to Practicing Safe Emacs. Everyone knows that Gentoo is the greatest distro on the planet, superior in all ways to RedHat. Anyway, in Gentoo it’s possible to create a generic
.emacs file for all users. A great way to ensure that everyone is, among other things, practicing safe editing.
To set this up, simply cons the commands you want into
and the config commands will be applied to all users. See the Gentoo Wiki Tip on using this to load Portage-installed Emacs packages.
