No, we cannot do that. MELPA contains packages promoting non-free
software and services, so at least Richard would surely veto that.
If your problem is mentioning "MELPA" the name, we don't have to do
that.  How to add any site to the package.el setup is already
documented in the Emacs user manual.

If we don't do any of that, we can't create a publish a user-friendly
guide "How to IDE" on our website.

I don't think we should give up our standards to gain a couple of
marketing points.

It's usability, not just marketing.

It is completely backwards, IMO, to put that cart
ahead of the horse.  We are supposed to develop high-quality software
first and advertising ourselves second, not the other way around.

We're supposed to make our users' life better.
