        Sorry, I used the bug reporting function. Since the package was
outdated, the wrong address was used.

        I use CVS packages; that's why I thought it was up to date.

        I remember threads about this on xemacs-beta (in Cc:), but did not
follow them. Anyway, (I'm talking to the other XEmacs folks here) wouldn't it
be better if we removed AUC-TeX from our packages archive, rather than
distributing such an old version ? (I'm not volunteering for the package
maintenance; sorry, no time).

        Seems fine now. Thanks.
