Why the patches on emacs?

Every time before saving a file it asks if it should add a newline. Every time.
I m+x customize’d it away, but it just perplexes me: who thought it’s a good idea, and so good indeed they should override the program’s default behaviour?


Welcome to the openSUSE forums.

To me it looks that you are not asking for help in you doing development and/or programming and/or scripting, but that you have a problem with an application. Thus I will move this to Applications. That will probably give you a wider audience then only those people that think they can help with Development and scripting.

I seems that you keep some patch/update responsible for a functionality change (or bug) in emacs.

Can you please tell us first what version of openSUSE you sue (because this was first in Development/Scripting that prefix was not asked from you on starting the thread). And please also tell us which update (or which update session) you think did it.
