That's the history of RefTeX's incarnation in Emacs' CVS repository,
not the history of the original distribution.  It might serve as an
approximation for the real history.  If it's simple to include it in
AUCTeX's repository, I won't object using it.

Yeah, I know.  An easy solution would have been to disallow changes in
Emacs' CVS repository and just check in new releases once they are
out.  But if bugs are fixed in Emacs' CVS repository that's actually
an advantage because then we don't have to take care of them. (c:  So
we should probably ask Miles if he can set up some synchronization
machinery.  At least from Emacs' repository to the one of AUCTeX.

I'd like RefTeX to have its own ChangeLog file.  But that will
probably not match very well with the current situation where the file
in Emacs' `lisp' directory is used.  Perhaps RefTeX could get its own
directory in Emacs.

As far as I am concerned RefTeX will keep its incarnation in Emacs'
CVS repository.  But once we've sorted out what we can on our own,
it's certainly a good idea to discuss outstanding questions on
