It seems no one has volunteered yet.

But I'm not sure what exactly is involved here.  All I can see in
elpa.git is that there is a pointer in externals-list to the dash
repository?  So why isn't it updated exactly?

Sorry, I don't know how this is all supposed to work.

Hmm, looking closer.  Is it enough for the package maintainer to just
push the latest changes to the 'externals/dash' branch in addition to
the original repository?

Does anyone know the answer to this?
