Follow the instructions in this form:

I'd just ask whom to ask when emailing the above form to address@hidden
Probably, that's the right recipient, and if not he'll know who is.

Yes.  We have chosen the name auctex-devel very wisely to make people
guess that.  And it seems to work. :-)

If you want to contribute to Emacs (and/or the packages that ship with
it or are in GNU ELPA), then write "Emacs" as program when requesting
the CA forms.  Emacs also covers AUCTeX but the reverse is not true.

Not necessarily.  You can also contribute to Emacs just by looking at
its bug reports and submitting patches on the issues.  Or implement an
entry in etc/TODO or some other new feature and submit the patches as
bug report.  Then you can keep focus on the task you are trying to
accomplish without getting 50 mails a day.

However, especially with new features I'd ask on emacs-devel beforehand
if there's a need for it and how to approach it best.
