This is the right place.

IIRC the Christopher Schmidt decided to take ampc out of GNU ELPA
because he wanted to incorporate code from contributors who don't want
to sign the copyright paperwork we require for GNU ELPA.

So the "more recent" changes may not be usable as-is for GNU ELPA.

(Some of) the answers should be in elpa.git's README file.

You could start by sending us the changes you've written.  If you intend
to maintain the package (or if your changes total more than about 20
lines's worth of code), you'll also want to sign the
copyright paperwork.  For that, fill the form below and email it
as instructed.


Please email the following information to address@hidden, and we
will send you the assignment form for your past and future changes.

Please use your full legal name (in ASCII characters) as the subject
line of the message.

[What is the name of the program or package you're contributing to?]

[Did you copy any files or text written by someone else in these changes?
Even if that material is free software, we need to know about it.]

[Do you have an employer who might have a basis to claim to own
your changes?  Do you attend a school which might make such a claim?]

[For the copyright registration, what country are you a citizen of?]

[What year were you born?]

[Please write your email address here.]

[Please write your postal address here.]

[Which files have you changed so far, and which new files have you written
so far?]
