An ELPA core package contains only files from the Emacs repository. In
the file "externals-list" of the elpa git repository you declare, which
files belong to this package. That's all. For Tramp, I would add the
following lines:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
 ("tramp"               :core ("lisp/net/tramp.el" "lisp/net/tramp-adb.el"
                               "lisp/net/tramp-sh.el" "lisp/net/tramp-smb.el"
                               "lisp/net/tramp-uu.el" "lisp/net/trampver.el"
                               ("doc/misc/tramp.texi" "doc/tramp.texi")
                               ("doc/misc/trampver.texi" "doc/trampver.texi")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I don't see, how a "dir" file fits into this interface.

Best regards, Michael.
