This branch would have a different file system layout. sync is not trivial.

And I maintain Tramp already in two different git repositories (Emacs
and Tramp's own), syncing them is always manual work. Having a third
repository in elpa would be much more work.

Don't forget that Tramp maintenance is almost a one-man-show.

No. Creating a package archive, and uploading it, can be done in the
Makefile. Once this is written, there is no further effort.

Best regards, Michael.
