    This is just a suggestion: considering that Emacs has moved to a
    powerful DVCS, maybe it makes sense to make ELPA and emacsmirror.org
    hook into the Emacs repo.  Give commit bits and some structure to a few
    people within an isolated "unsupported packages" area, and then let them
    organize that area and the interfaces to it, including tracking of
    foreign packages and repos, any way they see fit.  As long as it's clear
    that it's an area for unsupported packages, this has the benefit of
    integrating Emacs with the packages people find useful.

This might be a good idea, but we want to get copyright assignments for
these packages just as we do for the "supported" parts of Emacs.
That way we can move Lisp files between the two categories based on
practical motives.
