Given the context, the above could be understood to mean that you
consider that developers of MELPA packages are not part of "us" and
don't develop high-quality software.

I don't think that was your intention, but at the same time I'm not
completely sure what you wanted to say because I don't see the direct
connection with copyright assignments for GNU ELPA (which do nothing for
the quality of software) nor with adding a hypothetical archive like
MELPA-Libre (or GNU-ELPA-contrib) to our `package-archives`.
