Message Body: Details ...
If you wish to port MicroEmacs '01 to another platform and are willing to undertake responsibility for maintenance of that platform then we would like to here from you. Send us some details.
We have in the past performed the port on behalf of the client, this does require that we are given remote access to the platform (typically telnet).
