Is it really such a significant effort?  I wasn't aware of that.

There are things to be done, and just a couple months ago nobody was doing them. I see some movement now, e.g. the last commit by Thomas Fitzsimmons.

I cannot "git pull" a new version of Dired into my stable installation
of Emacs 24.5.

Of course you can: just copy the file over.

Automatic update is a really handy feature when you have 50+ packages installed. See some user statistics at https://www.reddit.com/r/emacs/comments/3s4k03/how_many_packages_do_you_use/

We could probably find a few more.  MH-E, for example.  (Of course,
their developers will have to agree to move.)

Yeah, I bet the majority of our users are unaware of what MH-E is.
