"Properly" is done with our Makefiles; AFAIK they are the reference
implementation, there is no separate specification.  So forget
"proper", just hack up something good enough.

For that, you simply need to substitute the variables in the XEmacs
AUCTeX Makefile for the corresponding variables in the existing, both of which you can get from Uwe, then compute and
substitute few simple data like package size, MD5, and date produced,
and wrap it in

(package-get-update-base-entry (quote
;; edited goes here

Then save to "package-index.LATEST.gpg".

AFAIK the funky ";;;@@@" comment is part of package-index syntax, and
it can't hurt.  IIRC size and MD5 are computed on the tar.gz file.  Done.
