    That amounts to using the Emacs repository is the canonical repository
    for Gnus, ERC, CEDET, MH-E, Org, ...
    But they don't want to do that, often for good reasons (legal,
    practical, ...).

If there is a legal reason for this, doesn't that imply a problem of
some kind already exists?  We need to find out what the claimed legal
reasons are, and think about whether they indicate legal problems for
Emacs development.

As for practical reasons, doesn't the flexibility of a DVCS
make them go away?
