I'm currently investigating in edwin, an Emacs-like editor bundled with MIT Scheme. The very moment I've tried to start it up, I've found an interesting question for the Stackexchange, but am not sure whether editors other than GNU Emacs are on-topic. Is there a policy on this?

  • Hm, I'm less sure on this considering that edwin is implemented in Scheme and can be customized in Scheme, too. This makes it different from programs that can be merely tought Emacs keybindings.

    Hmmm, ok, edwin is different from jmacs/µemacs/…, but still, it's an editor that doesn't run Emacs Lisp packages. That's what makes it off-topic in my book. Dec 3, 2015 at 0:16
  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because look at Gilles comment. Jan 1, 2016 at 19:22

    @King This is meta and the question is about the scope of emacs.stackexchange, isn't it the textbook example of an on-topic question? ;) Duplicate is something else entirely, of course.
