Description From 2010-04-09 04:40:33

Now, the "internal" terminal of Emacs (M-x term) sets TERM value to
"eterm-color", and the Emacs package includes a terminfo entry for this:


Currently, this terminal type is not known to the system terminfo (an older
"eterm" entry is included in terminfo-extra-5.6-alt4, Sisyphus'
terminfo-extra-5.7-alt3, but no "eterm-color").

So, I suggest to install this terminal description to the system terminfo

Also, it would be reasonable to distribute this terminal description in a
separate package, independent of emacs22-common: if one logins from the
internal Emacs terminal to an ALTLinux system without installed Emacs, one
should still be able to find the matching terminfo there. 

And probably make terminfo-extra package dependent on the new package, say,
terminfo-eterm-color, so that "apt-get install terminfo-extra" would pull all
available terminfo's.

В 4.1/branch исправления не будут вноситься уже технически (заглушена очередь
на сборку), поэтому прошу ошибки, актуальные для sisyphus/p7/t7, перевесить на
текущие ветки или сизиф.
