Simply moving the files to another repository (GNU Emacs or ELPA) won't
create a maintainer for them. There is no GNU ELPA community AFAIK.
Excepting perhaps Stefan, it seems to be individuals maintaining their
own packages. Emacs itself has a small number of active people, but less
used components can languish.

ELPA packages may contain info pages. Ref


Personally, I strongly recommend creating an ELPA package rather than
adding to Emacs itself.
