I may have a similar situation with ada-mode; my development work tree
does not match the elpa packages.

To push to elpa, I have a Makefile target that copies the appropriate
files from my development work tree to the elpa tree. Setting that up is
tedious, but as long as the set of files doesn't change often, it's
pretty easy to maintain.

So in elpa, ada-mode only updates when there is a release.
