Shouldn't we keep at least the CVS history from Savannah [1],
i.e. Emacs CVS.  AFAICS, emacs/lisp/textmodes/reftex.el,v goes back to
1997.  If reftex-alpha.tar.gz is newer, we should *merge* (not
overwrite) the corresponding changes into the Emacs CVS files.  We
should be careful not to lose any changes done in Emacs CVS.  When
merging Oort Gnus into Emacs CVS, Richard strongly wanted to make sure
that non of such changes get lost.

That aside, shouldn't we ask on emacs-devel before kind-of taking out
a part of Emacs?  Beside Miles' experience WRT syncing Gnus, the
situation for tramp might be comparable to RefTeX:

,----[ tramp/README-CVS [2] ]
| Tramp exists in three incarnations.  The CVS tree on Savannah is the
| main version, but there is also a copy in XEmacs and a copy in the
| Emacs CVS.
| TODO: explain how to get the main version into XEmacs and into Emacs.

Bye, Reiner.

[1] Probably the Savannah hackers would be able to copy the *,v files
    over to AUCTeX.
