Do you want to rename it to ELLE or make a new branch so named?

I'll take a look at copying the existing stuff over.  I think it should
be structured like this:


with the corresponding files from elpa.gnu.org inside.  Bootstrapping a
mirror should be as simple as checking it out and running
scripts/deploy.sh or "make deploy" or something like that, based on a
single environment variable ELPA_DEPLOY_ROOT.  That would let us deploy
a copy as part of the Emacs build process if we or users choose to, or
let distros or third parties package such deployments.

Would you rather do it my way or put just the packages in the branch?
