auto-insert-alist is a variable defined in `autoinsert.el'.
Its value is shown below.

A list specifying text to insert by default into a new file.
CONDITION may be a regexp that must match the new file's name, or it may be
a symbol that must match the major mode for this element to apply.
Only the first matching element is effective.
Optional DESCRIPTION is a string for filling `auto-insert-prompt'.
ACTION may be a skeleton to insert (see `skeleton-insert'), an absolute
file-name or one relative to `auto-insert-directory' or a function to call.
ACTION may also be a vector containing several successive single actions as
described above, e.g. ["header.insert" date-and-author-update].

You can customize this variable.

This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in version 25.1 of Emacs.
