I thought already about, but there wasn't enough energy to do it
yet. Maybe I shall play with what you have proposed. Be warned, I will
ask you when I'm blocked :-)

First question: I dislike, that I have to manage *.info files as git
objects in ELPA. Doesn't exist there a mean to produce them from the
sources automatically, when a package is released?

Second question: Tramp produces a web page from its tramp.texi, see
<https://www.gnu.org/software/tramp/>. It's often used as reference. How
could one produce it for an ELPA package?
