I have been unclear. package-1, package-2 here are directorires.

Like "obsolete". Not compile them or include them in loaddefs.el gneration.

Files stored in emacs git and elpa git are different kinds of file,
because they will require diffferent proceedures to update.

No, where 1a, 1b and 1c are different modules of the same package, such
as org.el, org-export, org-cal etc.

That's the only place that they can go, of course.
