bug#11410: 24.1.50; package.el `emacs' package information is broken


From: Toby Cubitt
Subject: bug#11410: 24.1.50; package.el `emacs' package information is broken

User-agent: Mutt/1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

The Elisp manual "Conventional Headers for Emacs Libraries" node says:

    The package code automatically defines a package named `emacs'
    with the version number of the currently running Emacs.  This can
    be used to require a minimal version of Emacs for a package.

However, the version number for the `emacs' package is null in my Emacs
build (a very recent bzr checkout), and the package description for the
`emacs' package reads "abbrev mode commands for Emacs"!?!

Here's the package description displayed by package.el:

  emacs is a built-in package.

      Status: Built-in.
      Summary: abbrev mode commands for Emacs

And here's the relevant element of `package--builtins' from my
finder-inf.el:

  (emacs . [nil nil "abbrev mode commands for Emacs"])

This breaks installation of any ELPA packages that depend on a minimum
Emacs version.
