I wouldn't trust GitHub or Dropbox to do this job.  They are fine
services but their business plan doesn't involve Emacs.

The premise that you need Dropbox to distribute files efficiently is, I
think, not accurate.  A web server like elpa.gnu.org is just as good.
There are many techniques for distributing web server load but I think
we're very far from that need.

The hard part so far has been getting copyright assignments for packages
(which I've only been marginally helping) and debating whether they
belong on elpa.gnu.org or inside Emacs itself.  Actually putting the
package up on elpa.gnu.org is trivial.
