I can't find docs for :auto-sync.  Is that still in use, i.e., is there
any behavior associated with it?  At least Stefan said in [1] that
auto-sync is effective for all packages in NonGNU ELPA.  And indeed, I
can testify that changing stuff in my upstream repo and increasing the
Version will trigger a new NonGNU ELPA release.

But maybe adding :auto-sync t is needed for GNU ELPA.
