Yes. Somewhere (probably in a file in Emacs.git), we'd have a MANIFEST file to
declares which ELPA packages are special with respect to development (core
ELPA), and which to the distribution (tarball ELPA). It could also include
other details, such as which Git version we intend to use, where the files
should be mapped to, etc.

A next step would be to invent this file, and then adapt our build process to
act on its contents.

Once we can show that this does what we want, we can pick a trial package
(say, org-mode), and then move it out of Emacs.git, and demonstrate that all
the same thing still happen as they did before, even though the source now
originates from ELPA.git instead of Emacs.git.
