Yeah, tex-site.el is generated from  The latter contains

  (defconst AUCTeX-version "@AUCTEXVERSION@"

where the placeholder is replaced with the auctex release version which
is grabbed from the ChangeLog (which is in turn generated from the git
log).  However, that only happens when tex-site.el is older than

I think, this hasn't been the case this time because Stefan Monnier
modified tex-site.el in elpa (that is, externals/auctex) some time ago,
but I'm not sure since before the release I did cherry-pick this and two
other commits into master before merging that in externals/auctex...

I guess I just have to be more careful the next time.  I fixed the
version right now, but I guess that won't be packaged anew without
releasing a new version.

But I don't understand why tex-site.el is tracked in externals/auctex
when it can and will be generated anyhow if it's older that  In master, it is not tracked.  Stefan, can't we simply
delete it so that it'll always be generated and issues like this one
cannot occur anymore?
