(I've realized ELPA is ambiguous because there's an ELPA archive at
http://tromey.com/elpa/, so I clarified the topic)

Maybe elpa.gnu.org should publish a repository for each Emacs release,
enabled by default in that release:

All 24.x releases:

24.1 only:

24.2 only:


All releases:

I think we can handle that with VCS branches.

Through consistent versioning, the newest package in any of the enabled
repositories should win.  So consistent versioning should probably be an
absolute requirement for elpa.gnu.org inclusion, together with the
copyright assignment.
