Sorry, my fault: i just checked and I was doing a reversed diff -- the git repo has no further reference to xemacs. Great! I will have a look at both problems now. It is good to find a work-related justification to do some lisp again.

Thanks! It really looks simpler than I expected. Maybe it could be added to the READMe?

Regarding xemacs, I cloned git repo and diffed it against auctex official tarball. Elpa and auctex 's tarball basically coincide, but both are missing references to xemacs that still show up on the git repo master branch from savannah. Seems I am doing something wrong...

Great to hear this!

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!
