Hi Artur, I am interested in the "git details". Please elaborate.

If that package is only used for testing, you can also just not merge

That's what I did with Names, because the tests involved a lot of
packages from other people with a ton of changes made by me. I'm not
saying I couldn't put those inside the Elpa/package/ directory, but it
was easier this way than to worry about copyrights.

I can go into the `git' details necessary for this if you'd like.
