bug#59970: BUG: install with package.el on emacs-29.0.60 requires manual

Subject: bug#59970: BUG: install with package.el on emacs-29.0.60 requires manual editing of hyperbole-autoloads.el to make autoloading work

Yes, all entries in hyperbole-autoloads.el become visible after I edited
the hyperbole-autoloads.el as in the formerly attached patch.
However, if you want to add it to a tar distribution that won't be used
by a package manager, I recommend this attached patch.
It expands the 2 characters #§ explicity (probably only understood by
package.el) in the former patch.
I have at least 2 packages on my system (magit and emms) that ship an
autoloads file with this explicit expansion.

However, the entries in kotl-autoloads.el are not yet visible. I think,
that it is possible to tweak the load-path  code in hyperbole-autoloads
in such a way that it also pulls in the kotl sub-directory.

If so, the tar will work without or with package.el.

Presently the elpa config does not allow us to ship the autoloads file
as we would like; instead it is built by elpa rather than being a part
if the distributions we make.  Maybe it could be added to tar
distributions that won’t be used by a package manager.

Did you get it working?

I have been very sufficiently impressed by the three Hyperbole presentations at Emacsconf to invest some time trying to install Hyperbole despite a message saying that Emacs failed to load hact after its installation from the package.el's description of Hyperbole.

I noticed that hyperbole-autoloads.el does not add the Hyperbole installation directory to load-path, so I edited hyperbole-autoloads.el as shown in the attached patch.

After checking, I also think that the tar files downloaded from https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/ do not contain XXX-autoloads.el to let package.el installation process generate those files, but I am not a package.el expert.
