I don't have plans for daily/weekly packaging of w3m-el-snapshot on

For upgrading to the latest development version of emacs-w3m with
Debian packaging, I suggest you to use the uupdate command included
with the devscripts package.

Example for upgrading w3m-el-snapshot from 1.4.400+0.20100725 to 20101227:

  # apt-get build-dep w3m-el-snapshot wget fakeroot devscripts
  $ wget http://cvs.namazu.org/emacs-w3m.tar.gz
  $ apt-get source w3m-el-snapshot
  $ cd w3m-el-snapshot-1.4.400+0.20100725
  $ uupdate -v 1.4.400+0.20101227 ../emacs-w3m.tar.gz
  $ diff -urN . ../w3m-el-snapshot-1.4.400+0.20101227 | pager
  $ cd ../w3m-el-snapshot-1.4.400+0.20101227
  $ dch
  $ debuild -uc -us
  $ debuild clean
  # dpkg -i ../w3m-el-snapshot_1.4.400+0.20101227-1_all.deb

If the uupdate command fails with the latest emacs-w3m.tar.gz, you
may file a "wishlist" bug report to Debian BTS.  I'll try to fix
the bug.
