gnu.org-hosted external repositories for GNU ELPA packages?

I've written some libraries that I'd like to propose as additions
to GNU ELPA (or otherwise contribute to GNU Emacs).


(and other projects which are in rather less-functional states.)

My preference would be to maintain them as external git repositories
so that I can push work-in-progress without bothering the emacs-devel
list, and only notify emacs-devel once I was happy for a new version
to be looked at.

I would prefer not to have to use some other git host, however.
It would be nice if the upstream repositories were hosted at gnu.org.

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs/elpa.git/plain/README does
discuss submodules and external repositories, but doesn't make any
suggestion with respect to a gnu.org hosted solution. It would be
helpful if this scenario was covered.

Is the sensible thing to register the projects at
https://savannah.gnu.org/register/ ?

I can see a couple of relevant examples in the externals listing:

 ("auctex" :external "git://git.sv.gnu.org/auctex.git")
 ("enwc" :subtree "bzr::bzr://bzr.savannah.nongnu.org/enwc/trunk")
