I don't understand what you mean by *installation*.

The reason I want a local ELPA archive is precisely to test that M-x
list-packages followed by install does the right thing with my package
under development.

If I want to install another package from ELPA in ~/.emacs.d, I'll use
the web access to ELPA.

You seem to be saying I should just create the .elc files in the git
workspace, and point to that in my .emacs, bypassing the 'package'
mechanisms; I don't see how that is useful.
