The ELPA package is built from the git repo, but indeed you can't use
the ELPA package to develop the package itselft.

Actually, the question has been already asked a few times before, here
you can find a quick & dirty solution:  At you can find the
information about how to clone the git repository.

I'm not sure what "references" you're referring to.  AUCTeX dropped
support for XEmacs in version 12.

I'm looking forward to seeing your contributions!
