Excuse me, but what do you mean by "for me"?  Isn't GNU ELPA an
important part of the Emacs project?  I'd expect something like "for
us" or "for Emacs", in which case not just you personally have a say.

And why do I have to submit bug reports against an ELPA package for
violation of our coding conventions?  I'd expect the maintainer of the
package to be asked to fix those as a precondition for accepting the
package in GNU ELPA, or at least as a long-term plan to which the
maintainer agreed in advance (in which case no bug report would have
been necessary).

What am I missing here?
