Shouldn't we keep at least the CVS history from Savannah [1],

Good points.  I think it might make sense to keep the Emacs CVS history.

I have always had the main version at my own site, and then updated Emacs and XEmacs from there. HOWEVER, RECENTLY THIS WAS NO LONGER TRUE. There have been a few small changes in Emacs CVS that I have not yet put back into my
own version.

Therefore, the latest version is the one currently in Emacs CVS, and we
should start from this, not from the alpha version from my homepage. The changes are few, but the Emacs side has in each case the latest, I just checked this again. This also means that we do not have to merge any changes with the Emacs CVS version.

The other files I have been talking about can be taken from the alpha distribution
from my website, which is the same as reftex.tar.gz on that site.

To summarize:

From Emacs CVS:



Makefile (probably will have to be changed for the distribution with AUCTeX)
