Would someone with good social skills like to ask the developers of
dash to move their development into GNU ELPA, or ask why they have not
done so?  I am sure they can see the advantage of having their latest
version available through Emacs.

Could we make explicit arrangements with the package developers, about
continued maintainance of the package within GNU ELPA, as part of
arranging to include the package in GNU ELPA?  Do we already do this?
