How about keeping track of package locations (a branch, Github,
wherever) and then downloading them nightly?  The publishing step, then,
would be manual and consist of reviewing what has changed since the last
commit (which is also the last publish), committing the new contents,
and finally deploying it all to the HTML tree.

I would not make it possible for package maintainers to directly affect
the HTML tree of the GNU ELPA.  But perhaps I'm too worried :)
