Organization of the repository
******************************

This repository has currently three branches:

   * 'master': the main branch of development of AUCTeX;

   * 'simplify-TeX-parse-error': a feature branch for improving parsing
      of TeX logs;

   * 'gendocspatch': keeps a patch to build on-line manuals and is
     intended to be used only by AUCTeX maintainers.  Unless you are one
     of them and know how to handle it, you really do not want to pull
     this branch as it will be rebased frequently.

Installation information
************************

If you retrieved AUCTeX via Git instead of as a regular release, there
are some files that need to be generated from their respective source
files before you can continue reasonably with the instructions
detailed in the README and INSTALL files (which will not be present
otherwise).

Run the shell script

    ./autogen.sh

in order to do that.  This will also generate the respective files for
the preview subsystem.

You will need to have a working and rather current copy of `makeinfo',
`autoconf' and of `perl'.

Running ./autogen.sh on a fresh clone of the Git repository will give
you the state of the distribution tarball, except that Git-specific
files are not removed.
