I've been an Emacs user for more than 15 years and I've been keeping my emacs configuration ever since February 2000 (when it was just a simple
~/.emacsrc) until it evolved over time to something quite complex and hairy. Since the past couple of years it's developed a will of its own, to the point now that I cannot easily maintain it: if I make a change to something, three other things will unexpectedly break.
I tried last year to overhaul my
~/.emacs.d structure and I had some success, but it's still an awful mess.
So, in December 2015 I declared Emacs Configuration Bankruptcy.
