Package: auctex
Severity: normal

auctex is not compatible use-package / elpa handling.  As a use-package
user, after installing auctex from Debian, it will try to install auctex
from nonetheless.  This is because the current auctex
layout doesn't follow elpa convention so that it cannot be detected by
use-package.  It would be great to make it compatible so that
use-package users don't have to install auctex twice.

I have attempted to convert auctex to use dh-elpa and prepared a MR[1],
please review.  Thanks in advance for considering!
