Pases is a system definition and packaging system for Emacs. It allows systems to be defined (including load paths, compile order, etc.) by package authors, and allows Emacs users to install packages with one command. No more editing .emacs files just to try out an Emacs package.
Pases is no longer maintained; I now use el-get to manage my emacs packages.
Pases is not part of GNU Emacs.
Please see the README file to get started & install pases.
