git clone git://bzr.sv.gnu.org/emacs/elpa.git
cd elpa/packages
mkdir apl-mode

`elpa' is a Git branch where we keep the source code of the packages
distributed via GNU ELPA.  GNU ELPA is auto-built from that branch.

So the main thing you need to know is that this `apl-mode' would then be
distributed via GNU ELPA and that new packages would be released
whenever you bump the "Version:" header.
There's also the fact that these file should follow some coding
conventions (mostly, the apl-mode.el file in there should have the
usual ";;; apl-mode.el --- <description>" first line, and it needs to
have a "Version:" header).
