Emacs provides a standard way to distribute Emacs Lisp code to users. A package is a collection of one or more files, formatted and bundled in such a way that users can easily download, install, uninstall, and upgrade it.
The following sections describe how to create a package, and how to put it in a package archive for others to download. See Packages in The GNU Emacs Manual, for a description of user-level features of the packaging system.
