Dear all,

the latest stable release of AUCTeX doesn't include the fix for the
parsing of TeX Live 2017 logs (see, so
now that TeX Live 2017 has been release it's a good idea to release
AUCTeX 11.91.  Is there any other quick change that you would like to
see into this version?

In addition, Norbert Preining expressed[1] the wish to see more
synchronization between ELPA releases and stable releases, because
GNU/Linux distributions rely on the latter, which however often lag
behind ELPA versions.  As I explained to him on, it's a general
trend in the Emacs ecosystem to favor ELPA to install and update
packages.  In addition, AUCTeX used to have a very awkward method of
installation on Windows that was even more awkward for upgrades, on
this system ELPA very easily solves our problems.

I'd like to cooperate as much as possible with downstream
distributors, but I'm not sure about what's the best way to do it:

* start tagging and releasing bug-fix versions also in the main
repository (not only in ELPA)?
* continue to not tagging bug-fix versions but do more frequent stable releases?
* other options?
